Please share a little about your religious background and how you came to be at St. Paul’s:

Phil grew up Lutheran - Missouri Synod and I grew up in the United Methodist Church. When we first were married, we attended an ELCA Lutheran church in Salt Lake City but after many months, had not really met any people in the parish. We decided to do some church shopping and chose St Paul’s to start because we liked how the building looked and it was close to our apartment, and many people in the congregation quickly welcomed us. What has kept us at St Paul’s is the community, intellectual stimulation and spiritual nourishment.
