Isaiah 55:9-13, Romans 8:22-24a, Matthew 14:13-21

Today we Welcome Rev. Dr. Dorothy Jeffery

Dorothy has a special interest in Ecology and Eco-Justice. She is a second career minister having previously studied Pharmacy, pharmaceutical analytical chemistry and toxicology.  She has worked in research in pharmacy, biochemistry, and as Quality Assurance scientist in an environmental laboratory. People often ask how she made the transition from science to theology and ministry.  She responds: both fields are about thinking deeply, so the transition was natural.  We are becoming increasing aware that all is interconnected, and to quote Wendell Berry, poet, environmental activist, cultural critic, and farmer: “I believe that the world was created and approved by love…and that…it can be redeemed only by love”.
