I'm an author and speaker and Presbyterian pastor.
I'm also a coffee-drinker, bike-rider, cat-owner, wife, mother, sister and friend. In my life I have owned turtles and gerbils, but never a llama. I have made my living serving omelettes and proofreading legal documents, though not at the same time. I have lived in many places including a brief but wonderful summer in Yellowstone National Park a very long time ago. I have traveled but not enough. My most recent trip was a mule ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
MY BLOG "Work in Progress"
I've been blogging for seven years. There's a list of Categories and Tags along the righthand side of the blog -- hopefully you'll find something that intrigues you.
MY BOOK "Chasing the Divine in the Holy Land"
I went on a pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine and wrote a book which was published by Eerdmans. There's a book trailer which is 90 seconds long and has some fun footage from the trip. I invite you to click on "My Book" and take a look. I know the world is full of good books, but I hope you'll add this title to your "to read" pile!
MY SPEAKING AVAILABILITY
If you're looking for someone to lead a retreat on the subject of pilgrimage, I hope you'll contact me. I often lead half-day or full-day retreats for groups of various sizes. I can use visuals from the Holy Land, if you like. I can be focused on Bible study, or more generally geared toward the spiritual journey of pilgrimage. I enjoy all permutations of the topic and would love to meet your group! Contact me by email: ruth (dot) everhart (at) verizon (dot) net.
