  1. This was a very helpful conversation during my early morning meditation. I received my Pastoral Leadership Program certificate a year ago from Seattle University and was the only Jewish artist amongst priests and pastors. I have found that being an art teacher has helped create that safe place in my studio classroom for those deeper conversations and has made my task as mentor and teacher much richer. Now that I am almost seventy I find that my life has taken on a whole new dimension that has me on a new adventure with this added perspective of listening to God and others during each day, like I tuned into another radio station! I appreciated the very articulate way Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell expressed herself and it helps me understand more clearly what I am about. I still have to pinch myself that this really is my function, kind of like when I became a mother in my early twenties. I think the search and hunger after wisdom is the key! I too, am involved with being a bridge worker between Jews and Christians.
