Laura Everett

The official version is something like this: The Rev. Laura Everett is a first time author of "Holy Spokes: The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels," out in April 2017 with Eerdman's Publishing, ordained pastor in the United Church of Christ; Executive Director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches; itinerant preacher; alumna of Brown University and Harvard Div.; Advisor at Leadership Education at Duke Div. New Jersey by birth, Massachusetts by choice.

The other version is more like this: I'm an spiritual magpie, gathering bits of twine and twig from many traditions. I'm a bicycle evangelist, happy to give you my testimonial about the good life that's possible when you give yourself to movement on two wheels. I'm a dedicated urbanist, convinced that cities form us in ways that challenge us to live tight with a whole lot of different folks. I'm crafty and I get around, most contented at my sewing machine. I'm building a silkscreen studio in my basement. I like thinking big about how we build vibrant institutions that hold tradition and cultivate innovation. I aim for attraction not persuasion. I believe the work of this moment is to upend the racism that has divided this nation and the Church. I'm convinced that if we're all not free, it isn't the gospel truth.

I'm a talent scout for the holy.
