Rogers came to Scarsdale Congregational Church in January of this year. Earlier she served as the minister of youth at the Congregational Church of New Canaan, Conn., and as associate for children, family, and youth at Norfield Congregational Church in Weston, Conn.

A graduate of Penn State University, Rogers earned her M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary and her D.Min. from Andover Newton Theological School after studying for a time at King’s College, London. She is a member of the Next Generation Leadership Initiative of the United Church of Christ.

Her sermon “Abundance Born Out of Scarcity” is drawn from John 6:1-21 which contains both the story of the feeding of the 5,000 and that of Jesus’ walking on the water. She says, “Jesus drew attention to his divine acts on earth to remind us that there are miracles all around us in our daily lives.”

The program includes interviews with Rogers conducted by Wallace, who is also executive producer.
