A graduate of Chicago’s McCormick Theological Seminary and a former Merrill Fellow at Harvard Divinity School, she is particularly interested in the ongoing discoveries of New Testament scholarship, environmental ethics, and the intersections between faith and daily life.  She especially delights in spending time in her cedar strip canoe.

Reverend J.J. Crow
