Congratulations to Phi Beta Jordan Trumble for being named Co-Managing Editor of the new magazine Earth and Alter!
Earth & Altar is a blog/magazine for and by catholic and reformed Christians of all denominations who see an expansively conceived credal orthodoxy as fully compatible with LGBTQ inclusion, gender equality, and racial justice. You will find reflections on theology, history, liturgy, preaching, spirituality, church practice, and the arts that are accessible to the thoughtful non-specialist for the good of the church and God’s mission in the world. Earth & Altar will primarily seek to provide a platform for voices traditionally on the margins of the church because of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and geography.
Jordan is a graduate of Capital University and Yale Divinity School and currently serves as the Priest-in-Charge of Christ Church in Fairmont, WV. Before her current call, she served as the program director of Peterkin Camp and Conference Center in the Diocese of West Virginia, where she taught children about Jesus and sang songs about chimichangas and alpacas. She is a native West Virginian who found her way home after two decades of living elsewhere and is committed to the cause of teaching others that, yes, West Virginia is its own state and, no, she doesn’t live near Richmond.
