Compassionate Christianity Blog Articles by Erin
Erin Robinson Hall is a writer and consultant who works in developing resources for faith formation, ministry consulting, and designing experiences for spiritual formation. Writer, podcaster, retreat leader, and preacher are all pieces of Erin’s vocational life.
Erin and her husband Jake, a pastor, enjoy laughing and learning with their young son in Macon, Georgia. She has served on the Christian education staff in churches around the Atlanta area, and served as Minister of Congregational Life at Heritage Baptist Fellowship in Canton. These days, this pastor’s wife does not sit in the same pew from one Sunday to the next, but has been known to bring all manner of folks into the pew beside her. She is a strong believer that a little dancing in the kitchen can make the world a better place, so Beyonce and Stevie Wonder, among others, are regulars in her home. When she needs to untangle from projects, The Great British Baking Show and Parks and Rec episodes are just the thing. She has little interest in sports, gossip, Pinterest-perfection, or mean spiritedness, but loves to talk about big picture, social justice, everyday-wonders and God-winks-in-the-world kind of things.
Erin enjoys designing programs, curriculum and experiences for learners that invite imagination and spiritual formation. She holds a Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology at Emory University and a Doctorate of Educational Ministry from Columbia Theological Seminary. Erin is the recipient of the 2018 Gabriel Abdullah Award for the best research design program for the development of moral values, and the 2018 John Nelson Award for The Bible and the Missional Church, focusing on scripture, congregation, and community.
Erin has worked with Three Minute Ministry Mentor, Hope4CE, NextSunday Resources, Baptist Women in Ministry, Faith Element,The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and the Listen to Your Mother Show. Erin can be found at erinrobinsonhall.com and she co-hosts a podcast called “Glass Half Full” where she curates conversations about the rhythms of work, parenting, ministry and life.
