Leah Wise was created to chronicle my move from Florida to Charlottesville, Virginia in 2012. Over the years, it became a place to store original poetry, theological explorations, sermons, photography, and life updates.
Now I live in New Haven, Connecticut, where I’m working toward an M.Div. I was recently ordained as a transitional deacon in the Episcopal Church and will be ordained as a priest (God-willing) this fall.
While I haven’t updated this blog as much as originally intended, I hope to make it a permanent home for sermon manuscripts and other pastoral care and theological reflections.
In addition to this blog, I maintain a sustainable lifestyle blog at stylewise-blog.com and write for publications such as Christianity Today, Relevant Magazine, Mind Body Green, and Elephant Journal. I’ve also consulted for and partnered with nonprofits such as Kentucky Council of Churches, Catholic Relief Services’ Ethical Trade Initiative, the Rainforest Alliance, and the United Nations Development Programme.
