Pastor Melanie Unger

MelanieUngerFAMILY
I am married to John, my best friend and life partner for over 20 years. We have two kind, smart, and fun-loving sons – Jordan and Nathan.

HOBBIES AND INTERESTS
I enjoy road trips and biking with my family, coffee and movies with friends, and good books and crossword puzzles by myself.

FAVOURITE AUTHORS
Anne Lamott, N.T. Wright, C.S. Lewis, Barbara Brown Taylor, Madeleine L’Engle, Khaled Hosseini, John Steinbeck, Elizabeth Strout, and blogger Ryan Dueck.

FAVOURITE MUSIC
Coldplay, Wintersleep, Indigo Girls, Third Day, The Dixie Chicks, and indie bands I keep discovering on CBC Radio 2.

WHAT I’D LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OR TRY
I’d like to learn how to bake some of the foods my grandmother made – like cinnamon buns and pfeffernuesse (peppernuts)!

FAVOURITE TV SHOWS
Madam Secretary, The Crown, and The Amazing Race Canada.

IF I COULD BE DOING ANYTHING RIGHT NOW
I’d take a road trip to Canada’s east coast. I want to eat fresh lobster, listen to local fiddle music, and look for lighthouses.

MORE ABOUT ME
In a world where self-interest and fear of “the other” seem to rule the day, I’m more and more compelled to speak and live the Jesus way of love, peace, and justice. I’m inspired and encouraged by people who find new and creative ways to do that.
