How are you fed? When do you eat what is good and delight in rich food? (Isa. 55:2). I'm looking for God's Rule on earth and imagine it is full of great food--enough for everyone--and time to really sit and listen to each other while we are eating.
My first love is working with groups of people: teaching, facilitating, learning, celebrating. I want to explore the great diversity of who we are as God's created beings, to get to know people who are different from me. I spend a lot of time writing--books, articles, blogs, proposals, grants, applications. Emails. An excess of Facebook posts.
In 2007 I worked with Mary Jane Eaton to create Worcester Fellowship, an outdoor church made up of people who do not have homes or are at risk of homelessness. The leadership of those parishioners informed my DMin project; for that and for my book I visited and interviewed nine churches where people who are food insecure are the volunteers for meal programs and pantries.
Officially I'm the Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Mae Magill (MDiv 2002 from Episcopal Divinity School, DMin '17 from Brite Divinity School), ordained with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). People call me Pastor Liz. Or just Liz.
I spend my free time quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, skiing, and looking for people to play board games. With my love Ken Porter I travel and look for music in the world.
