Rev. Milissa Ewing
In the midst of experiencing trauma that felt like death, I began to walk in the forest, where God always speaks. In those dying days I saw once-majestic old-growth giants, cut down for profit, now stumps on the forest floor. But with time, water, and sunlight, they had become a source of nourishment for new life. God grieved with me and whispered his promise that out of my sorrow, new life would emerge with time, water (God speaking love through my therapist, spiritual director, and soul friends), and sunlight (the healing work of the Spirit). Out of death, resurrection life emerges.
Milissa is passionate about seeing people reconciled to God, one another, creation, and themselves. To that end, Milissa and her husband, Jay, are Pastors at Redwood Park Church in Thunder Bay, ON. Originally from the West Coast of BC, Milissa loves the forest and the lakes and ocean; both her art and her ministryare informed by God speaking through his creation. In her free time, you will find Milissa spending time with Jay and their two daughters, painting, reading, trail running, skiing, swimming in lakes, or cycling.
