Knitting and other fiber work, reading, hiking, meditating (okay, what I really mean is daydreaming), napping, and having Pikes Peak take my breath away every time I look out our living room window. Oh, and observing the wildlife around our house.
What do you see as some of the biggest challenges facing Anglicans today?
I haven't been in my parish long enough to speak with authority about their challenges. There's no question, however, that the biggest challenge facing Anglicans is respectfully and graciously creating unity amid diversity.
What do you see as some of the biggest opportunities for Anglicans today?
Despite our challenge regarding unity, I believe that the diversity that exists among Anglicans provides us with an amazing opportunity to engage the wider culture in creative ways.
What do you want Anglimergent to be? and what other Anglimergent resources, gatherings, activities or events would you find helpful for your ministry?
Frankly, I'm just thankful for the opportunity to be in relationship with like-minded people. Being Anglican and emergent has been a solitary path for me on a local level. My occasional encounters with kindred spirits like Phyllis Tickle and Becky Garrison, among others, have helped keep me sane and hopeful.

Marcia: Get down to Saint John's Cathedral in Denver for The Wilderness on a Sunday evening at 6PM (when you're not buried in snow!). We are a community formed along emergent lines and are a pretty passionate bunch.
thanks for writing ... so it's the same place ! Cool!! THEN, perhaps you've met me ! I celebrated a eucharist for St David's one very misty summer day (August) outdoors at a park. I was with a church group with young people from Brookline, MAssachusetts. Were you possibly there then? If so, small world to reconnect here. Let me know if we're less than six-degrees connected.
I'm a long way from Woodland Park, I'm in Manchester England - a long way from "doing" emergent but very interested and enjoy the people who hang out here.
but I'm pretty sure I spent a couple of weeks there in 2006 ... Is your church one where Drew Van Culin was rector in the past?
I thought the place was absolutely beautiful - it's Pike's Peak in the distance, isn't it?
Love the "purple" too!!
