About

Hi, I’m Jo Anne Taylor. Though I currently serve a United Methodist congregation, I do so as an ordained minister of Word and Sacrament in the the Evangelical Covenant Church. My first post – “God sings!” – tells you a lot about who I am, and who I think God is.
I’ve also been a singer and a teacher. Recording credits include solo tracks with the Kansas City Chorale (Nimbus Records: Alleluia, an American Hymnbook; Fern Hill), Rose Ensemble (Season of Angels; Slavic Holiday) and the Dale Warland Singers (Bernstein & Britten). I taught voice and choral music at every level from preschool to college for more than 25 years.
Then God called me to be a pastor. As I made my way through seminary and began to realize that when God asks for our ‘all’ God means all, I began to recognize that everything I ever learned about the art of singing and the practice of teaching applied to ministry. I still sing every day, and I hope you do, too.

I hang out on Twitter sometimes (@pastorsings), if you’d rather interact there than here on the blog.

    Dear Anne Taylor ,

    I read sermons by you on Luke 19,39-48; Matthew 25,1-13, 16, 21-28 and 13, 24-30… on the Internet, to which I linked from the website http://www.learn-from-Jesus.net that has just gone online.

    Because for my retirement, as long as the LORD gives me the time and strength, I have decided to point out the opportunities for us Christians in the years 2030 to 2033. For this purpose, I had a website designed that is so plain and simple that it can be copied for other languages ​​according to instructions. I have now tried that with the help of google translator with English.

    It is my goal that in the future even more such websites are linked to one another and become so visible that the disciples of Jesus really went to all peoples or are still on the way.

    Second, the aim is that we / each take more seriously what Jesus Matthew 28:19 says: “… and teach them to keep what I have commanded you.”

    Sincerely yours
    Dr. sc. theol. Katharina Dang
