July 2013 - I started this blog 2 years ago. I like having a place to experiment with creativity and see how my thoughts have been shaped over the past couple of years.
I am now three years into what looks like will be five years in seminary. So living in the in between has become a longer stretch than I anticipated. I try to trust that God will use me even though I don't always see what the plan is. In the past two years I have experienced great joy and deep sorrow. I have traveled to places around the world, and I am blessed to share the stories of the people I meet and how they are carrying out God's mission.
My journey continues to be rich, and I am very thankful to be surrounded and loved by some of the most amazing people who support me and offer guidance and grace. *****************************************
June 2011 - I am starting this blog as I celebrate my 40th birthday. I have a wonderful family, a fulfilling job, a progressive church community, friendships with amazing people, and have just finished my first year of seminary. My Twitter and FB descriptions say I am a crunchy mix of food, faith, and social justice.
Lately I have been thinking about the depth of God’s grace. It is unbelievably endless. The more I let go and step into the wide open space trusting God to carry me into that place that God wants me to be, the softer that cloud envelopes me pushing me higher and farther than I ever dreamed or knew was possible. The more I walk in faith the more I experience that grace.
As I enter a new place in ministry and profession, and seek to center myself in the in between, this is a space for me to reflect and express the little thoughts and deep thoughts that come to me.
