Listen along to the following three interviews from our Big Table Sunday, November 26th. We enjoyed a potluck-style meal prior to our service followed by fellowship, worship, communion and thee conversational interviews with some pretty awesome people.
Here is a little about each of the interviews:
Introducing Sue Paris! (Interviewed by Pam Sand)
Sue is a joyful, kind, and courageous woman of God who loves to make others laugh. She is a delightful friend, who can both celebrate the good times as well as walk through the tough ones with joy and an inspiring steadfast faith. Sue is all about people, and has spent her life sharing Jesus’ love while teaching Sunday school, counseling, doing Bible studies, and being in relationship with her many friends, her family, and her church. She was a hairdresser for 20 years, and for the past 12 years she has served as an Independent Senior Care Companion. Sue also has a passion for cooking, and anytime she’s involved you may find yourself getting a delicious treat or meal!
Introducing Aaron Porter! (Interviewed by Mike D'Eliso)
Aaron is a deep water person who loves neighbors well, advocates for the least, and has a hunger for spiritual truth. He recently graduated with his masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Oregon. Aaron recently launched his career and currently works as a therapist for Looking Glass by helping young men overcome adversity and discover their full potential. Aaron and his partner Logan Knauss are avid adventurers! Outside of the counseling office, you'll likely find them challenging themselves to new heights on the face of a cliff somewhere in North America.
Introducing Sarah Withrow-King! (Interviewed by Dusty Johnson)
Sarah is the Deputy Director of Evangelicals for Social Action and the co-Director of CreatureKind, a project engaging the church on farmed animal welfare. Sarah grew up in Eugene, and has just relocated with her partner, Giehl, and son, Isaiah, back to the area after fifteen years on the east coast, most recently in Philadelphia. Sarah is the author of Animals Are Not Ours: An Evangelical Animal Liberation Theology and Vegangelical: How Caring for Animals Can Shape Your Faith. She’s not very good at having fun outside of work, but loves the TV show The West Wing so much that she’s helping coordinate a fan weekend, like ComicCon, but for The West Wing. She’ll read almost anything, loves her gym, and always says goodnight to her dogs.
