Kim Winchell

I am a life-long Lutheran and have been involved in a variety of ELCA efforts to promote the care of creation since the early 1990's. That involvement, and the Spirit's urging, ultimately drew me into candidacy for a public ministry of the ELCA, and I have been serving in a call to the North/West Lower MI Synod as a Diaconal Minister for Earthkeeping Education & Advocacy since 2005.

I feel so very blessed to be able to share my passion for tending and mending creation with others, as we all work together to answer God's call to earthkeeping.

Paul Santmire; Sr. Virginia Jones, CSJ, PhD, and Diaconal Minister Kim Winchell. Includes comments by Bishop John Schleicher.]
