My favorite love story is Ruth and Naomi. It's of two women of different cultures and different values, brought together by marriage. They form a bond so strong that Ruth leaves her home and her own family to accompany her mother-in-law, Naomi, to a foreign country that will never recognize her as a worthy person. And that deep bond is rewarded by a 'jealous' God who makes Ruth the great grandmother of the great king David. Who, we all know is the line which produces the Messiah.
Rev. Deb Conklin’s wheels are always turning. How can the church make the world a better place? How can it make Spokane better?
Her passions are many, including social justice in the mainline tradition, emergence and the post-modern and missional church.
