Stephanie Spencer - Executive Director

What are 3 words you would use to describe yourself? 
 leader, teacher, explorer
Why are you working with 40 Orchards? 
I am not exaggerating when I say studying with Rabbi Alan has changed my life. I am learning what it means to trust God, see other people, and inhabit the Scriptures in whole new ways. I am passionate about helping others have the same experience.
What is one of your favorite words from Scripture? Why? 
Nephesh- soul. It means so much more than spirit, what many would use as a synonym. It is our being, the whole of who we are knit together by the breath of God. I love the holistic understanding of our humanity present in that little word.
What’s a quirky or little-known fact about you?
In first grade, we had a class project to write out what we would wish for if we had 3 wishes. Mine were: 1) A cure for cystic fibrosis 2) A cure for cancer and 3) Eggs for breakfast.

passionate, transparent, and teacher
Why are you working with 40 Orchards? 
I'm working with 40 Orchards because I want to help others uncover new ways of seeing the world, each other, and Scripture.   40 Orchards has changed the way that I see myself and God.   I love being a part of something that is healing and transformative.
What is one of your favorite words from Scripture? Why? 
One of my new favorite words from Scripture is Eden or delight.  I'm still learning about this one, but I'm beginning to see how delight is all around us.
What’s a quirky or little-known fact about you? 
I rarely finish a book.   But I read many.   At the same time.
