I am pastor of The Church of Good Shepherd, United Church of Christ in Ann Arbor. I am very fortunate to serve in this congregation’s midst. The Church of the Good Shepherd (COGS) is intentionally multi-racial, multi-cultural. This church actively welcomes and celebrates gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgendered and questioning individuals. My congregation endeavors to work for a just and peaceful world. COGS has a vibrant worship life, and a deep love for another another and the larger world.

This blog is a collection of my reflections as I work with and serve the good, faithful people of The Church of the Good Shepherd, UCC. I am inspired by the long history of faithfulness and justice-seeking of these people.  I pray that this blog will help the world see the Good News as it unfolds at COGS.

God’s Peace,
Rev. Deborah Dean-Ware
