Today, this day, Friday the 17th of November 2017, let the record show that I am updating my “About Me” page for, basically, the first time since I began this blog in the spring of 2009.

Cutting edge content, yep.

I am Jen Raffensperger. As of this writing I am 45 years old, I am half-time Youth Director at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia, MD, I am a seminarian and Aspirant for the UU ministry at Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago, IL, I am proud co-resident with Desmond – a handsome gray-and-white domestic shorthair cat – and we are about to be joined by Peggy, a very young still pretty much all black kitten. We live with my mother, as I help her age in place and she helps me afford seminary by living rent-free.

I have struggled mightily to know quite what to do with this blog, but the current truth of the matter is I am loathe to give it up. Nothing expressed herein is anything other than my own thought and opinion, and does not necessarily reflect the views of my employer or the UUA.

  1. Your blog is really good! Thank you for posting all this. It has been great reading. Digex seems like such a long time ago and its interesting to see how people have come along since then. I think you have become a very impressive person.

  2. I found you on hocoblogs as I am project manager for the Well & Wise blog and like to check in on other local bloggers. The word “grief” popped out and dragged me in to your blog. (I always compare it to the tide- it comes and goes and there’s nothing you can do to control it). I read a few random posts and look forward to coming back and reading more. You’ve got a great writing style- infused with articulate observations and gentle humor. I enjoyed it very much. I’ll add you to my ‘bedtime story’ list of things to read with other blogs like onamorningwalk. Blogs that thoughtfully inform the journey. 😉
