Highland Park United Methodist Church, Great Hall

3300 Mockingbird Lane

Dallas, TX US 75205

Date: Apr 1, 2019

Time: 11:30am

Hannah Buchanan, Director, HPUMC Cornerstone Worship; Peggy Wehmeyer, Journalist/Religion Correspondent

Join this dynamic mother-daughter duo as they discuss the challenges of navigating faith across generational and social viewpoints. How do we respect differences in how we apply our faith in our lives? How are we inclusive of Christ and one another? When so many differences loom between us, how do we stand together?

Peggy Wehmeyer is an American journalist. She was born in Oklahoma City but was raised mostly in Barbados and Texas and is a graduate of the University of Texas in Austin. As a young woman, Peggy worked at Dallas Theological Seminary in the Public Relations Department. In 1994, she was hired by ABC News, with the strong support of Peter Jennings, to become the first full-time religion correspondent on a national news network. Before taking the position at ABC, Peggy worked the religion beat at WFAA-TV in Dallas. In 2002, she left ABC to become the host and anchor of World Vision Report, the radio arm of the World Vision charitable organization. Peggy has two adult daughters. Widowed after the loss of her first husband in 2008, Peggy married Robin Blakely in December 2017.

Hannah Buchanan is the Director of Cornerstone at Highland Park United Methodist Church. Her zig-zag journey to ministry started at Wheaton, where she graduated in 2009 with a major in Economics and a minor in Biblical Studies that fed her passion for theology. Upon graduating, Hannah joined Teach For America to make a difference, teaching special education on the South Side of Chicago and coaching other teachers in the district. Not convinced education was the solution to the Big Problems of Life, Hannah decided to pursue a Master of Social Work. To pay for graduate school, she took a job as an Executive Assistant at Munger Place Church. Two years (and one almost irrelevant graduate degree) later, Hannah came to HPUMC’s Mockingbird campus, where she leads and establishes creative vision for contemporary worship. Hannah and her husband Ryan live in East Dallas. They delight in their one-year-old daughter Eliza and dream about how God might one day use her to do his work in the world!
