LSTC Stories

Louise Britts on parish ministry, chaplaincy, knowing God’s love “I actually see God’s grace rain down. I see God’s miracles. I can name God’s miracles, so I know that God is.”
Witness while walking: Francisco Javier Goitía Padilla on leadership, faith, service “God reveals God’s self in unexpected places, in the places nobody looks, in the places discarded by society. You find God there—at the cross. For us [in the Latinx community] wrestling with immigration, race, dealing with opportunities and dilemmas of urban cities, we can make sure and proclaim hope in the sense that it is in our darkest places that Christ can come and be with us.”
Beyond reciprocal altruism: Herbert Anderson on empathy, trust & stories that define us “To be recognized by the Church that brought me up and the Tradition that formed me – that matters.”
Radical welcome meets sacred hospitality: Jason Chesnut on digital ministry in a new era “Listen as much as you can. And if you feel uncomfortable, listen specifically to that voice. Embrace discomfort.”
