St. Lydia's Staff & Leaders

  • Emily Scott

    Emily Scott imagines her ministry as "creating space for moments of transcendence through ritual." At St. Lydia’s, these moments take place around a common table where God comes and finds us. Trained as a liturgist and musician at Yale Divinity School and the Institute of Sacred Music, Emily has followed a particular interest in the intersection of worship and the arts. She founded St. Lydia's in collaboration with colleague Rachel Pollak and congregants in 2009, and was ordained as a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in 2012.
