the Rev. Lisa Doege
Nora Church’s Full-Time Minister

Rev. Lisa Doege
the Rev. Lisa Doege

In August 2011, the Reverend Lisa M. Doege became our full-time minister.

Ms. Doege was raised in a Unitarian Universalist family in the Twin Cities, and attended Sunday School and Coming of Age at Unity Church Unitarian in St. Paul, Minnesota, the congregation that ordained her in 1994.  She holds degrees from Hamline University and Harvard Divinity School, and completed Clinical Pastoral Education programs at both the University of Minnesota Hospital and Clinics (now Fairview-University) and St. Paul Ramsey Medical Center (now Regions Hospital).  After completing an internship at First Unitarian Church in Dallas, Texas, she served congregations in Bemidji and Fridley, Minnesota, and South Bend, Indiana.  Narrative theology, preaching, and UU women’s history are areas of particular interest.  Ms. Doege also participates annually in Ohio River Group, a UU ministers’ study group.

In her spare time Ms. Doege weaves, reads, walks, bakes and corresponds with family and friends.  She enjoys travel and swimming.  She has the often delightful, sometimes calamitous habit of seeing a project on tv or in a magazine, and responding, “I could do that!!”  As a result, three large boxes of craft supplies accompanied her to the parsonage.

Lisa writes, “After more than a decade away I returned to Minnesota in 2007 to be nearer my family and to enjoy the familiar, progressive Upper Midwest way of life.  I don't have a single Scandinavian ancestor, but as a native Minnesotan I eat lefse and exclaim “uff da!” with the best of them.  I'm excited to be joining the Nora community;  in many ways you embody the Unitarian Universalist spirit despite what outside observers might call your unlikely location.  My sister and her family, my brother and his family, and my mother and her black lab (Bear) will be frequent visitors.  They like hearing me preach from time to time.  They like this beautiful parsonage, church and church yard even more!!”
