I met Katie as a fellow congregant and thought she was wonderful then, just as a person and fellow mom. As I became a religious educator, I watched her go through seminary, absolutely pouring her heart, mind, and soul into the work. Now that we are both serving congregations in a professional capacity, Katie is an inspiration and anchor. She’s someone I turn to when the work is both heavy and confusing and she is always present in the moment, listening deeply and reflecting before offering her insight. I cannot stress enough how important her ministry is; she does much to urge our faith ever onward toward justice and equity. Not to wax melodramatic here, but our faith tradition is lucky to count her among our clergy, truly.
