The Journey Begins

Hi, my name is Leigh Todd, and I am a senior religion major at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN.   I’ve been accepted to United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities in Minnesota, and this blog will be a recording of my journey through Seminary and through my call into pastoral-ship!

As for me, what denomination am I and what is my faith like?  I am a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) tradition, and I am a Unitarian who believes that we must remain in Christ by faith, demonstrated by our works, to achieve salvation (like Catholicism).  I’ve come a long way in this journey of faith, and I’m excited for this next chapter in my life.  I am married to my husband Jacob, and him and I are moving to the Twin Cities this fall.  I’ll be registering for classes soon and will be working a lot and preparing for the real adult world this summer, as Jacob and I hope to get enough furniture for our apartment and all that.

The objective of the blog is to not only show my journey with God through graduate school, but to give advice, humor, and love to all Christians who might read this blog.  Even though my faith is unique, I feel like I can relate to many Christians about the ups and downs of the Christian faith, so I’ll try to share what I know that has helped me keep going.

Thanks for reading!

Hosanna in the Highest.  Happy Palm Sunday, by the way.

Thanks,
Leigh Todd
