Welcome, witnesses, with stories to tell. Welcome, winners, to whom the lottery fell. Welcome, bystanders, wondering what lies ahead. Welcome, fearful, whose hearts are filled with dread. Welcome, leaders, with decisions to make. Welcome to worship where the Lord is glorified for God's sake!
Julie served as a Commissioned Ruling Elder in a Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation for thirteen years. She now absolutely delights in filling the pulpit for colleagues upon request, and looks forward to opportunities to do so. Her reformed perspective is sprinkled with humor and presented with authenticity, and she is open to creatively deconstructing worship as a means to helping congregants explore worship in transformational ways.
Julie and her husband, Ray, are parents of three adult children, and grandparents of four energetic and imaginative little people. She is an introverted-with-enough-extrovert-balance-to-keep-her-social, perfectionistic-with-hopper-tendencies, time and goal-oriented, kaleidoscopic, and insatiably curious child of God.
