Sun, Nov 29: Rev. Liz Milner
This Sunday at our 10 am service, our guest preacher will be Rev. Liz Milner, executive director of Correctional Institutions Chaplaincy of Santa Clara County. She has served as facility chaplain at the women's jail and Elmwood men's jail since December 2016, and as Executive Director since June 2019. Before that she volunteered with CIC for over ten years, while she worked as associate pastor at a local church. She completed her MDiv. at Fuller Seminary in 2016, a certificate in Anglican Studies at CDSP and several units of CPE in San Francisco and Redwood City. She is ordained in the Episcopal Church as a transitional deacon and will be ordained priest on Dec 5, 2020. She and her husband moved to the U.S. from the U.K. in 1996, and she has (mostly grown!) three children and two beloved dogs. Join via Zoom.
