We continue this season, #TapestryOfCall, with the Rev Kelsey Brown. This conversation is so full of joy and openness and we hope it will be a balm to your soul as it was ours. Rev Kelsey shares about the beauty and the struggles of her work with and among her community of Jehu’s table-an African Descent Lutheran congregation. We are so grateful for her vulnerability and her wisdom.
Here’s her bio:
Rev. Kelsey Brown describes herself as sometimes funny, very queer, frequently anxious, and completely absurd. A 20-something hailing from Long Island, New York – she comes equipped with the accent & attitude to back it up. In her free time, she is falling back in love with spoken word poetry, breaking it down on the dance floor, and ritual creation. She believes with her full heart that God’s delight in diversity is call for us all to embrace the fullness of humanity. Racial justice and advocacy work fuel her fire, while deep friendships and long naps quench her thirst. She can be seen in her natural habitat – quoting show-tunes, doubled over in laughter and challenging others to “do the work.”
