Lisa Harmon
On this podcast for the second time we interview Lisa Harmon the senior preacher at Billings First Church. ↓↓Taken from her bio on the Billings First Church website, Lisa describes exactly what she's about.↓↓ "It’s a call. It’s a practice. It’s remembering who we are in soulful, joyful belonging. I am called as Minister of Healing and Transformation of beloved community. Through my ministry and works, I have endeavored to embody the example of Christ in my life, in the work that I have done and in the work that I do today in all settings whether at a city council meeting, at the Montana State Legislature, on the streets in downtown Billings, in a hospital setting, or at the font and pulpit. I continue advocate and work on behalf of those experiencing homelessness, with the addicted, with marginalized populations within the native community, and LGBTQI+ community, with the stranger, the immigrant and the refugee, and across the spectrum of community. The embodiment of the life and ministry of Jesus has taken many shapes and forms in my life over the years as I taught high school French and German, created a cause-related, award-winning, national company, and served as witness on various community boards and commissions that made compassionate and just gains for the City of Billings and Yellowstone County. I have served and continue to serve on boards like the Native American Coalition, Community Innovations, Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter, the Mayor’s Committee on Homelessness, the YMCA, Billings Cultural Partners, the International Downtown Association among others. A 500-hour certified, trauma-informed yoga instructor, I teach 2-3 classes a week. I teach at the Montana Women’s Prison, having started a program there, at Passages, a pre-release center, at Billings First Congregational Church (weekly class), and am a substitute at a private studio. In my years of community work, I knew that God’s spirit was working in me; I knew that God was in our midst in the beloved and broken community that I was called to serve. I am called by God, called by community, deeper into community. This is who I am, a minister of the United Church of Christ." *Email us at thefridaypacket@gmail.com with comments, questions, concerns. *Go to https://www.patreon.com/thefridaypacket to “buy that for a dollar” and become a sustaining member of the podcast!!
