"I had the opportunity to travel to Whittier Friends Church outside of LA this past weekend. I was invited by the dean of my seminary (Earlham School of Religion or ESR) to come and speak about entrepreneurial ministry, which is a name being applied to ministers working outside of traditional church settings. It’s a growing reality and one that I’m happy to see ESR supporting.

"My own ministry work, which happens online, in yoga studios, and with one-on-one clients in my office, is definitely outside traditional structures. There is a hunger in our culture for authentic spiritual practice and a desire for connection with divine mystery (an idea that holds different meanings for different people) and I feel greatly blessed to be able to come alongside people and offer support as they search for these things in their own way and seek well-being in their bodies, minds, and spirits.

"While at Whittier Friends, I had the opportunity to preach, which is something I love to do, but don’t often get the chance. My work focuses on spirituality and yoga and I enjoyed writing a sermon that weaves these two things together for a Quaker audience."
