Rev. Sarah Almanza
Minister. Bartender. Dog mom.
I am a questioner. A seeker. A person who believes in the transformational love of God.
"God has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Divine require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
Rev. Sarah Almanza
I'm an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and served a variety of ministerial positions in churches in DFW. I also happen to be a progressive, feminist, ethnically-ambiguous, woman which gives me a unique perspective on God, faith, and life. I'm a long time ally to the LGBTQ+ community. I am pro-choice, passionate about reproductive justice issues and having healthy conversations around sexuality and spirituality.
I believe that love is the foundation of all things and that building healthy relationships between one another, the earth, and God is holy work. Learning to love in radically transforming ways is what guides my faith. I talk a lot about God and the Spirit but, Jesus is really the reason I know about love, justice, and compassion.
I also pour beer. It is basically the same thing. I get to serve people and hear their stories.
