Lydia Sohn

Minister | Writer | Speaker

Lydia Sohn is a minister, writer and speaker and on staff at St. Mark's United Methodist Church in San Diego, California. While her role requires a vast array of tasks from preaching to cleaning old storage closets, her strongest ministerial interests include contemplative spirituality, progressive theology and building community. She received a Bachelor of Arts from Scripps College and a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School, where she was a Marquand Scholar.

Her favorite things in life include writing in cute coffee shops (always with a cup of coffee and a cheese danish), putzing around San Diego with her husband and son, dinner parties, small towns with rivers and a solid standup comedy show on Netflix.
