"Worship leader, liturgist, musician with a global perspective, gifted preacher ... Susan Phillips brings a wide and rare range of gifts to Christian worship. When people ask about liturgical reform, renewal, and "worship in the future," I'll say, 'You need to learn from Susan.'"
- Brian D. McLaren, author, speaker, activist
What I love --
~worship that moves us body and soul!
~interactive, relational, multi-sensory, creative, faithful spaces that propel us out to serve God’s world with love.
~integrating people and arts to create space for encountering the Sacred and building community.
Worship I design includes: prayer, ritual, images, video, theater, dance, conversation, sacraments, installation and fiber arts, meditation, music, scripture and preaching.
Workshops I lead invite reflection, engagement, practice and more reflection about change, faith & doubt, arts, community, love & justice.
Freedom. Equality. Justice. Peace.
Young Voices: Visions of Justice from New Generations
This year we had a beautiful constellation of young voices sharing their wisdom and music. Presenters included Jaime Bodden, Director of the Shawano Menominee Counties Public Health Department, and Dan Terrio, educator, actor, community organizer from Bowler. We also heard from kids and teens about their visions of justice in our neighborhood and the world.
Our musicians included Menominee rapper, Gary D, and folksinger and encourager across the generations, Skip Jones. They shared the stories that inspire them as we work together for peace, justice, freedom and equality for all people.
