My name is Lee Whittaker. I am an ordained minister with the
Progressive Christian Alliance. I believe strongly in the emergent
church movement. I believe there are many who are spiritually hungry
and religiously homeless out there because the church that is dying
did not serve them. The emergent church movement is filled with
visionaries of a new church with inclusive worship and rituals so that
all souls can be fed. God has work for us!
A little about me. I'm an unapologetic, queer, progressive, ordained
Christian minister, 1st degree pagan priest, Jewish, Buddhist, who
works a practice of radical welcome as best as I am humanly able to on
a day to day basis. I have been in recovery from alcoholism for 30
years. I have a Masters of Divinity from Starr King School for the
Ministry in Berkeley, California.
My ministry involves helping people heal spiritually so that they may
be able to make healthy and informed choices on their spiritual path
and about their relation to the Divine. I see so many who are
suffering needlessly in spiritual woundedness that has resulted from
abusive theology and religion done badly. My call is to help people
find their relationship with the Divine as the Divine presents itself
to each individual by teaching and preaching the good news.
