We welcome our new minister of music

St. Mark’s has a new music minister. Marcia Klinder-Badgley will start with us on Ash Wednesday.
  She writes:
  “From performing on concert stages throughout the United States, Europe, Scandinavia and Asia to lecturing college students as an instructor of humanities/religion/music to serving as a chef at restaurants, cafes and wine bars to serving in music ministry in the Midwest, west and east coasts … what incredible plans God has for us on this Earthly journey!
  “With undergraduate and graduate performance degrees from Luther College and Arizona State University, I have been privileged to serve as director of music ministry, director of worship and arts, and minister of music within Lutheran, Presbyterian, and Episcopal churches.
  “It is with great excitement that I join the staff of St. Mark’s and look forward to meeting you all!”
  Big thanks to Beth Frazier and Robert Burton for stepping in during our long period without a permanent music minister.
