About Rev. Dr. Randolph Miller:  Born and raised on the southside of Chicago, I was shaped by the American Baptist tradition and by the racial and civil unrest of the 1960s.   In early formative years, I sensed a nascent calling to the ministry of spiritual direction and the care of souls, but having a lover’s quarrel with the church, I found my way as a clinical social worker (MSW:  Loyola University-Chicago) into the practice of psychotherapy with substance abusers and their families.  
 
Somewhere in my mid-20s, I embraced the faith that had embraced me and called my name. I followed the call to seminary earning an MDiv at Northern Seminary and was ordained in the American Baptist family, where I served three congregations in Wisconsin, Los Angeles, and southern Oregon.   As pastor, I worked with local congregations in matters of racial reconciliation and social justice seeking to deepen the faith walk of congregants to care about the things God cares about.   To refine my skills and knowledge, I began doctoral studies in the ACTS Doctoral Program in Preaching with a concentration on African American Celebrative Preaching.   
 
In these later years, with the assistance of Sr. Maureen McDonnell, I found my way back to the care of souls, which I now consider my life’s work.   Trained through the Franciscan Spiritual Center in Milwaukie, Oregon, I have begun a practice of spiritual direction with pastors and church leaders.

Invitation to Contribute Music: Additionally, if you have the capacity and interest, we are looking to expand our library of music we can share during the service (because of the Zoom client, we now share recordings of music instead of performing live). We are looking for music that is of the general flavor of "Taizé", as well as international and shape-note tunes (though recommendations of any variety are appreciated). Some proficiency in self-recording is desired, though certainly not necessary. Please email caleigh@workerjustice.org if you are interested or have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
