The Writer

Sandy Keys Photography

Corrie Gus grew up in Ohio but in adulthood has made a grand loop around North America, living in California, British Columbia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Hawaii, and California again. She has travelled or studied her way across 18 countries. She currently serves as a pastor at a large church in Silicon Valley.

Corrie has a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies from Westmont College and a Master of Divinity from Regent College. She is an ordained minister with the Evangelical Covenant Church.

Corrie began her career working with young adults and college students, followed by several years as a congregational minister specializing in pastoral care. Along the way she completed an internship and residency in Clinical Pastoral Education and worked as a hospital, hospice, and school chaplain.

Corrie’s fundamental beliefs are: God is Good, friends are family, life has a soundtrack (stuffed with 80’s music), and laughter heals.

This blog is a series of reflections and explorations of God, family, faith, iconic moments, striking images, and cultural phenomena — all of which the author carries close to her in a sort of metaphorical purse.
