thinking theology

who and why

My name is Trudy Lebans. Sometimes I use my full name, Gertrude. I am a poet, a mother, a partner, an anglican priest, a theologian, and a wildly imaginative, mindful, intentional human being. I write because I love to write.

    Hi Trudy, I loved your story about the “Happy Land”. Thanks for sharing. Susan+

  2. Trudy, as a senior, who has walked the way, without knowing the way, I really appreciate your open hearted, wise, and confusing, words! They resonate with my experience of faith, not knowing, but reflecting whatever light can be seen .

    I am delighted that you continue at St. Matt’s and St James, where many fine minds and lovinG hearts have followed the path without knowing the end…bless them all, and keep up the good work! Blessings to all! Dick Rokeby

    Hello Trudy. I have been seeking a current location for you so that we, Ying and I (Ken), could meet up with you again some time. You married us at Guelph on July 29th of 2001. We have two boys now, Andrew (b 2002) and Peter (2004). I tell people about our encounter with you at Saint James all the time – how you stepped out into the street to bring us in for coffee that Sunday morning. We did not realize that morning you were the pastor, much less you would marry us. So now I am reaching out to you to see if one day we might get to see you and thank you. We live in Fort Erie now. You can contact us at Ying is now a nurse practitioner and practicing in Niagara Falls, NY and I am still a financial advisor (working out of Buffalo). From 2011 – 2016 we spent our lives in Houston, Texas, but we can tell you all about that at some later date. We are well and so thankful that you officiated at our wedding. Please let us know how you are and how we can visit with you. …..Ken
