Emily M. D. Scott

Emily Scott (she/her/hers) is a church planter, pastor, and author. Her first book, 'For All Who Hunger: Searching for Communion in a Shattered World, tells the story of founding St. Lydia's, a Dinner Church in Brooklyn, where church is created over a sacred meal. For All Who Hunger received starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews, Booklist, and Publishers Weekly. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times and the Christian Century. A Lutheran pastor (ELCA), Emily believes that Christian practice holds out rich possibilities that call us to reach out across boundaries in love, learn through discomfort, and build relationships that bring God's realm close. Queer and genderqueer, she is committed to building communities of faith that dismantle fear and hate, affirm LGBTQ+ people, and confront racial injustice. Emily currently serves as pastor of two congregations in unique partnership: St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church and Dreams and Visions, in Baltimore. These two congregations, one historic, one just a few years old, are partnering together, sharing a building, pastoral staff, and a commitment to their neighborhood, city, and the LGBTQ+ community.
