She is ordained in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and was previously on the faculty of Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, OH. She is a scholar and translator of the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and has published and taught widely on contemporary questions of ecology, environmental ethics, and spirituality.
