This VERY MUCH IN PROGRESS website is a gathering place for things I have written (like liturgies and prayers), links to things I like (like liturgies and prayers) and other things I've done. I'm an incorrigible borrow of others' writings, and started this website to contribute a bit.
I'm Alison Casella Brookins (she/her/Rev), a pastor and playwright still figuring out the difference between the two. I believe the gospel is good news, but reading it right means it must be both Good and News for the historically marginalized. I do my best to live into a theology of justice, joy, and humor, living for those moments when the world cracks open and something remarkable peeks through. I pastor and live on the traditional land of the Potawatomi, Miami, and Peoria Peoples.
Ordained in Mennonite Church USA, MDiv 2017 from AMBS, Chair of the Board of the Center for Art, Humor, and Soul. Speculative fiction is my bread and butter (met my spouse at a spec fic book club). White, gender-playful, with plenty of het-married privilege. Doting dogmom, determined runner, periodically obsessed knitter.
