Linda Quanstrom, Pastor
“To say that pastoral ministry is a challenge is an under statement as any pastor knows. It is daunting and humbling and sometimes downright scary. But for me, it is also a grace and a blessing. It feeds and energizes me. I love its variety, its unpredictability, its demands for creativity and flexibility and I love it for the fact that I can’t do it on my own. It reminds me (almost) everyday that I need God. The doing of it is as spiritually nurturing for me as are its devotional practices. God has worked transformation in me through this work. My hope for ministry is that those to whom I minister can be as God-blessed as I am.
There are other things that enrich my life as well: digging in the dirt, kayaking, sharing good food and conversation with friends, wandering through salvage yards, writing: I dabble in worship liturgy and open-verse poetry, and Beacon Hill saw fit to publish a small book entitled And Some Are Walked Home (a narrative interpretation of some of the parables).
I love laughter, think ambiguity is an okay thing and believe our questions (not our certainties) move us to a truer faith” –Pastor Q
