Emily Scott is the founding pastor of St. Lydia's, a Dinner Church in Brooklyn, where communion is shared at the dinner table. 

A Lutheran pastor of the ELCA, Emily is committed to building communities of faith that dismantle fear and hate, affirm LGBTQ people, and confront racial injustice. 

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. 

Emily is a graduate of Yale Divinity School and received the Alumni Award for Distinction in Congregational Ministry in 2016. St. Lydia's has been covered by The Atlantic and the Wall Street Journal.
