MILWAUKEE - Annysa Johnson with the Journal Sentinel joins us to talk about Rev. Kristin Nelson.
EASTER: For as long as she can remember, the Rev. Kristin Nielsen has experienced God and the world through the lens of her Lutheran faith. She grew up a “PK” a pastor’s kid in a Lutheran home. She attended a Lutheran seminary, and has spent more than a decadecheck preaching the Gospel in Evangelical Lutheran churches.
These days, Nielsen pastors a combined Presbyterian-Lutheran congregation on Milwaukee’s west side as two churches -- Good Shepherd Lutheran and Trinity Presbyterian -- work toward a rare and once-unthinkable merger across denominational lines. Theirs is in many ways an Easter story -- one of death and new life, of letting go and trusting that what is to come is greater than what was. Annysa Johnson.
