Hey gang! I'm back in New Orleans. Just got through a splendiferous Mardi Gras, basking in the love of my hometown. I'm working now on the transition team for the first female Mayor-Elect in the history of the city, LaToya Cantrell, facilitating leaders from across the city on economic development policy recommendations as she prepares to take office May 7. I find that, in fact, a lot of my theological study and pastoral training is translating into policy work in very interesting ways. Thinking of you all often and fondly!
