My name is Pat Fish. I am an M. Div. senior at Luther Seminary. Last year I was on internship at a congregation, Peace Lutheran Church (www.peacecoonrapids.org), in Coon Rapids, MN. My wife, Kate, and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary this past August. My wife is studying to be a Marriage and Family Therapist, and we will both be done with graduate school in May. Woot Woot! We are both from Chicago and hope to someday return Chicago to be closer to our families. Aside from my passion for Church ministry, I am a big Chicago sports fan.
I am excited to be back in class and seeing familiar faces around campus. As my wife, family, and friends can attest, I am the type of person who has resisted technology. I didn't get an iPhone until this past year and was proud of my flip-phone, despite the grief I received from people. Honestly, I am afraid of the direction we, as a society, are headed with social media and how it will impact our young people going forward; however, I understand that I cannot as a leader ignore the use of technology in the Church. I am excited to learn more from this class about how to effectively utilize things like social media and blogging to enhance God's ministry in the world.
