Following a unanimous congregational vote this weekend, we are DELIGHTED to announce that St. Lydia’s will be calling Elsa Marty to be our Pastor!
Elsa is originally from Minnesota. She is finishing her PhD in Theology through the University of Chicago Divinity School. Her dissertation is about Indian Christianity and contextual theology, and she has spent several years in India working with tribal Christians. She is passionate about a theology of grace and Christ’s love as the foundation for social justice and the healing of the world. She and her partner, Matt Veligdan, love the outdoors, making music with friends, and dollar pizza.
We are so excited for all that Elsa brings to St. Lydia’s, and for this new season that is beginning.
Please share this wonderful news!
