Today’s guest preacher:

Pastor Kathryn A. Tiede serves as the Associate Vice President for Philanthropy at Lutheran Social Services (LSS) of MN. Pastor Kathryn shares her love of God’s creation in her work with communities across the state, and enjoys inspiring others to care for the world, knowing that how we care for the world affects us all. Under a call to special service through the St. Paul Area Synod, Pastor Kathryn moved from parish ministry to serving at LSS in 2015. She has served congregations of the ELCA and The Episcopal Church, ministering in both English and Spanish. She holds degrees from Macalester College, Harvard Divinity School, and the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, and finds that her ecumenical and interreligious education serves her well in her role at LSS.
