I’m a church lady of the most faithfully irreverently reverent variety. I hang out at St. Paul Episcopal Church in Seattle where I get to say mass week after week (and four times on Sundays), an experience that makes me think there must be something like this in the Kingdom of God, especially if we keep our eyes on the poor and forgotten in our midst and beyond our seeing.
I like to hang out in coffee shops and gyms in Queen Anne, and, from time to time, in coffee shops and gyms in Portland. I love to work, walk, play, write, and talk with sinners, seekers, and sojourners about how they got here and what’s next.
This blog has had several incarnations. Most recently, it was a space to share reflections on a pilgrimage to Israel/Palestine with a group from St. Paul’s and beyond. I’m grateful for that time and those reflections, and hope that pilgrimage is as good a theme as any, going forward.
