How long have you been a member of Luther Place?
I’ve been a member of Luther Place around 4 years (I’ve attended at various points over the last 8 years or so).
How have you shared your time and talents with the Luther Place community?
I have been a part of various ministries at different times. I started serving in worship as a reader, assisting minister, communion assistant, and greeter. Currently, I am involved with the Beloved Community Incubator as one of the founding Board members helping to set up the general functions of the incubator and the curriculum for current and future worker-owned cooperatives or businesses. From time to time, I am also involved with the Dulce Hogar Cleaning Cooperative providing translation and support as needed.
What is your favorite memory from volunteering/serving at Luther Place?
I cannot say there is one specific memory. I have enjoyed one-on-one and group conversations with other members of the congregation over time. I especially enjoy those conversations when we connect the current ministries to the long legacy of solidarity Luther Place has had in DC and elsewhere and then continue to build on that historic legacy.
I hope to continue to attend Luther Place for many years to come and that we can continue strengthening the ties with our local community showing that we are all part of Christ’s body and care for each other (1 Corinthians 12:27).
I am currently a realtor in DC and soon in Maryland. I would enjoy discussing real estate with anyone that is interested. In my free time, I enjoy hiking so please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
