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?

Micah 6:8

 

About Me

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.

Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower

Author: Brittney Cooper

Far too often, Black women's anger has been caricatured into an ugly and destructive force that threatens the civility and social fabric of American democracy. But Cooper shows us that there is more to the story than that. Black women's eloquent rage is what makes Serena Williams such a powerful tennis player. It's what makes Beyonce's girl power anthems resonate so hard. It's what makes Michelle Obama an icon. Eloquent rage keeps us all honest and accountable. It reminds women that they don't have to settle for less. In the Black feminist tradition of Audre Lorde, Brittney Cooper reminds us that anger is a powerful source of energy that can give us the strength to keep on fighting.
