Pastor Zayna here (aka PZ, aka Peas). I am progressive Christian pastor in Southwest Wisconsin serving First Congregational United Church of Christ, an Open and Affirming congregation in Platteville. First Congregational is yoked with the small, rural congregation of Mt. Zion UCC in Cornelia, about 10 minutes outside of town.

I live with a beloved dog, Brett, and my partner, Matt and his cat, Albus. In 2019 we welcomed 5 beloved chickens to our life! When we’re not taking care of the animals we like to eat good food, see great (and sometimes notsogreat?) theater, and travel to far off places. But those are expensive hobbies, so we supplement with pizza and Netflix.

This blog is a place to drop sermons, musings, and big questions that seem to be lingering.
