Episode 19: Advent Themes on Love


The Reverend Keith Anderson is an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and serves at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church in Ambler, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. He is the author of the new book The Digital Cathedral: Networked Ministry in a Wireless World, which helps ministry leaders understand and navigate our new digitally-networked ministry context, and discover God in the midst of everyday life, whether that’s in local or digital gathering spaces.

Keith’s work on religion, new media, and popular culture has appeared on The Huffington PostON ScriptureDay 1, and The New Media Project. He serves on the editorial committee for Odyssey Network’s ON Scripture lectionary commentary series and the advisory board for the Day 1 radio program.

One of Keith’s passions in ministry is helping people find God in the midst of everyday life. It was born out his own need as a father of four to find God in the everyday, the ordinary, the mundane—and the chaos of raising kids. In his ministry, he lives this out through hosting coffee shop conversations, theology pubs, and collaborating with local and digital neighbors.

Keith holds a B.A. in Religion and Philosophy from High Point University, an M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School and a Master of Sacred Theology Degree from The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia.

Jennifer Anderson, a proud native of Canada, graduated from Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario with a B.A. in Archeology and Near Eastern Religion and Culture and holds a Master of Theological Studies degree in Hebrew Bible from Harvard Divinity School.

Jenny’s primary vocation is motherhood. She is immersed in everyday living from kid’s homework, to juggling activities and schedules, nurturing relationships, supporting family and friends, and advocating for education. She also works for a farmer-florist in Philadelphia.
