Thanks for checking out my website! Ever since I could read, I wanted to be a writer, but one day I became a pastor instead. For many years it did feel like “instead.” I wrote sermons every week and that seemed to suck up every bit of my writing energy. I figured I’d get back to other writing when I retired. My midlife crisis consisted of deciding that I couldn’t wait for retirement to write. My first book, Breathing Space: A Spiritual Journey in the South Bronx, was published in 2003 and my second book, Hidden Inheritance: Family Secrets, Memory and Faith, was published in 2015. I’m excited that I have a new book coming out on September 29th, the same day as the first presidential debate. It’s called Sanctuary: Being Christian in the Wake of Trump. There’s more information on the Book Page of this site. Thank you again for coming here. I welcome your comments. Heidi
PS I continue to be a pastor, having moved from the Bronx to Manhattan where I serve Trinity Lutheran Church on West 100th Street. I’m also the executive director of Trinity Place, our shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth. I live in a parsonage attached to the church with my husband, Gregorio and our two cats.

Dear Heidi, thank you so much for your Bibelarbeit during the Kirchentag in Berlin. It was both moving and practically helpful – especially the thoughts about the 3-months-period, which one needs so often in the course of life to find an new basis and to cope with whatever tasks or grief comes across one’s path.
