Worship & Pastoral Care Activities
In addition to my own day by day ministering with the church:
I recently (March 18, 2018) led worship service at Milford Lantz United Church and Gay’s River United Church and have been invited back for September.
I conducted a beautiful private funeral service last summer (2017) at Ettinger’s Funeral Home for the Peters’ family.
I frequently provide music ministry at different churches and nursing homes in my community.
I write/perform spiritual music which, I’ve been told, has brought great comfort to listeners.
I lead two yoga/meditation classes per week for adults. I incorporate spiritual elements and progressive theology wisdom into these classes.
