Blog Background: Life is an adventure. A holy, mysterious, awesome, terrible, beautiful adventure. I am a curator of curiosity along the journey. I started this blog in late 2008 as I was preparing to start my first call as a pastor. Over the years, blogging has been a meaningful way for me to share photography, poetry, and reflections on life. This blog led to the development of my weekly column, Holy Everything, which appeared for nearly 12 years in the Rochester Post-Bulletin every week.

I'd love to work with you!: 
Rev. Sarah Moat, pastor of Gethsemane Lutheran Church, served on the planning committee for a recent women's retreat for which I was the presenter. There were 100 women in attendance, and the retreat lasted from 8:30AM to 1:30PM. Rev. Moat shares, “Emily was a wonderful fit for our group and our women loved her! Her presentation was thoughtful and well prepared her style was warm, hospitable and accessible. From the very beginning she was easy to work with and flexible with our unusual requests. We loved her.” Contact information for several references is available.
