Meet the Member: Evelyn Smith

By Alexis James Waggoner | 9.24.2018

As part of a new initiative to introduce members to each other, and to the larger community, we interview Evelyn who has been a member of Westar since the ’90’s! She joined when she became acquainted with the work of Marcus Borg through a leader in her church. Soon after, she met Marcus at a conference and he invited her to sit in on the work of the Jesus Seminar. She got up at 4am the next Saturday to drive six hours to Sonoma and be in the room when the scholars continued their debate and discussion about the historical Jesus. Watch the full interview here. And learn more about joining Westar here.
