I am part of First Presbyterian because marriage brought me to Bend in 1985. I feel that I’ve been planted here to continue following the thread of God’s call in my life and I’m grateful for the opportunities in our church to serve as a volunteer along with a wonderful staff and congregation. it brings great joy to my heart to accompany others in spiritual direction, prayer practices and ministries that deepen our connection with God and others, for the sake of the world God loves. I give thanks for the ways the Spirit moves among us, stretching, surprising and transforming us as part of the body of Christ.
My husband David and I have enjoyed service in other countries and it’s always good to return home to Bend and First Presbyterian. Travel is on my list of favorite things, second only to friendships. Local favorite activities include Centering Prayer, playing the violin, reading, walking with our two dogs, having coffee with friends and writing articles and letters.
