We haven’t been able to go as many places as of late. But places and sense of place provide great meaning and stability in our lives. Author and minister Anna Woofenden joins us to talk about the importance of place and how places become sacred in our lives.

About our guest:

Rev. Anna Woofenden (she/her/hers) is the founding pastor of the Garden Church and Feed and Be Fed Farm in San Pedro California, re-imagining church as an interconnected organism, worshiping, loving and serving together while transforming a plot of land into a vibrant urban farm and sanctuary. Through this process, she has become a leading voice in the food and faith movement, particularly in the area of liturgy and innovative ministry.

At the end of 2017 Anna transitioned the Garden Church to new leadership and is now consulting on outreach and new ministry opportunities, teaching, writing, speaking, and coaching across the country and is the founder and co-host of the Food and Faith Podcast, the transition Pastor at Zion Lutheran and the Protestant Chaplain at Amherst College. She is the author of This is God’s Table: Finding Church Beyond the Walls and has written for various publications including Christian Century magazine.
