I’m a wife, a mother, a Mennonite pastor, living in the awesome town of Lawrence, Kansas. Apparently I thrive on chaos since our home hosts myself, my full-time teacher/student/gardener husband, two teenagers, a grade schooler, two cats, one dog, two hamsters, six chickens, the occasional misplaced college student or traveling Mennonite, and a cockatiel named Flannery. (Connor passed away in a tragic and mysterious back deck incident.)
I enjoy pastoring, preaching, reading, creating art, crafting worship, praying, napping, facilitating retreats, thinking random thoughts, and writing about everything.
I seek a spacious faith that surrounds all that I do and all that I am–with plenty of room to explore and grow. This blog is a bit of a spiritual discipline for me. I pray it is a welcome companion for you along your spiritual journey.
Peace of Christ to you,
About this blog:
You should know that I’m far too lazy to keep up more than one blog. Which means everything is thrown together here.
I write a lot of worship material and post most of it. If you are looking for worship material, you can use the “Catagories” to see pieces by type: call to worship, offertory prayer, etc. The “Index” page allows you to look up pieces related to specific texts or topics. You are welcome to use the worship material on this blog in your own worship setting. I appreciate hearing from those who use the material. And I ask that you share the lucrative profits you make if you sell any of my materials as your own. :-)
I also love to explore creative prayer practices. I produce and provide online support for creative arts retreat materials. You can find out about the retreats and find links to supplemental material on the retreat pages. Sometimes I post creative prayer practices on the blog as well.
In addition to worship pieces and prayer practices, I also write about art projects, recipes, biblical insights, theological thoughts, parenting problems, and other randomness. You just never know what you might find.
Oh, and lots of my sermons are posted under the “Sermons” tab. Though that drop-down menu is a bit unwieldy. If you are looking for a sermon on a particular topic or scripture, your best bet is to look at the index page.
Finally, you should know that this is my blog. If you do not play nice, I will block your comments and pray for your immortal soul. What I write represents my views and reflects my mood on a particular day. My views are not necessarily the views of Peace Mennonite Church, Western District Conference, or Mennonite Church USA. Really. Trust me on this.
