Questions and Answers with Rev. Trudy
What’s one thing a visitor to LUMC needs to know before visiting?
LUMC is alive, forward-thinking, vision-oriented, grace-filled, faithful, and welcoming of everyone, no matter what!
What’s your favorite local eatery and what’s your go-to menu item?
I love everything on the menu at Smokin’ Fins on Main Street.
What do you like most about working at LUMC?
Things are happening! Staff, volunteers, members and friends live in the movement of the Spirit, rising to challenges, responding to vision, listening, praying, singing, receiving God’s grace, and seeking ways to love others.
What’s your favorite song or piece of music?
I love the new hymn “Gather Us In” as it calls the young, old, lost, forsaken, rich, haughty, proud, strong, weak, lowly…all of us into the sanctuary of God where “new light is streaming” and now, the “darkness is vanished away.” That’s church!
Give us an elevator speech for your ministry.
To love. To choose love in every situation, to lead with love, to challenge others to love, to live in the hope of love.
What’s your favorite thing to do when you have free time?
I love concerts, movies, bike-riding, scuba diving…I still don’t love running, but I do love the feeling of finishing a run! Most of all, love being with my daughters and my pets.
