My name’s Allison Wehrung.
I come from a family of Ohioans, but grew up in North Carolina (home of the Avett Brothers and Cheerwine and Cookout). I’ve been wandering all over the Southeast ever since. I majored in religion at Furman University, but was definitely not going to seminary and was for sure never going to be a pastor. (Yeah. Okay.) After college, I signed up for the Young Adult Volunteer program. The YAV program took me to Nashville and then New Orleans. (These were both terribly uninteresting cities that did not foster my creative tendencies at all.) I’ve also worked at summer camps in both of the Carolinas, Florida, and Georgia. (This probably accounts for the fact that I’m happy to get a little dirt under my fingernails, and I’m not all that afraid of getting caught in the rain.) Now I find myself living and working in northern Mississippi, an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
The Holy Spirit is on the move, and I’m just over here with some magazine scraps trying to make some sense of it all. To read some of my thoughts on doing art, check out About the Glue Stick.
