The Other Jennifer Potter
Bio: I am co-founder and current pastor of The Other Church Lancaster in Lancaster, PA. It is a result of years worth of work, both individually and collaboratively. I value the exploration of all things spiritual, with a particular interest in Christianity. This blog is my way of articulating some of my own journey, including struggles and celebrations, certainties and countless questions. I have many other roles that shape who I am and how I spend my time, including hospital chaplain, wife, mom, daughter, friend. In truth I hate to write these kinds of things - a short paragraph of who I am or what I love. I've deleted dozens of attempts because each feels either trite or contrived. Yet the question still lingers... Who am I? Tough question on most days. I am "The Other Jennifer Potter" because "Jennifer Potter" was already taken, and I believe in living life fully while equally taking time to process. I believe in God on most days, and I find a life of faith to be more rewarding than a life of cynicism. I can't lose the cynicism so I choose to add faith. The result is maddening, frustrating, helpful, challenging, encouraging, and life-changing. And someday, I hope to look back and say that my life made a difference.
