About the Book
Pastor Iris, shown here with husband Steve, is a former foodservice executive, author, award-winning television commercial writer and was listed in the 1977-78 edition of Who’s Who of American Women
. After retirement from business, she attended Harvard Divinity School, St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Seminary and graduated from Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary. As a minister of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, she served congregations in Florida’s Palm Beach and Martin Counties and is now retired.
Getting to Know God is the homespun, down-to-earth story of her lifelong struggles to know God. An entertaining yet helpful book for anyone who has outgrown a childhood image of God in the face of today’s scientific and technological world, it’s a blend of simple faith and a view of God from a contemporary, life-inspired perspective. And just when you think the story is over, she zaps you with a magical ending that defies rational explanation. Her Selected Sermons at the end of the story reflect that same blend of reason and Spirit.
