Where in the World is God?
Rev. Diane Baker

In our world today, around every corner and on every news outlet, we are bombarded with reports about the worst that is going on in our communities, nations and environment. It’s easy to get disheartened, despondent and even depressed. We could be convinced that we’re on the slippery slope down into the abyss. However we are reminded every day in many ways that God is in the mix, pulling us onto the path that brings health, healing and wholeness. We just need eyes to see.

Before opening her private counseling practice in 2000 Diane worked in corporate America for 16 years. She holds a Mechanical Design Engineering Technology degree from Michigan Technological University; a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Counseling from Oakland University with a Post-Masters specialization in Marriage and Family Counseling; She also earned her Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degrees from Ecumenical Theological Seminary. Her DMin explored how church leaders can become more mindful through family systems-based conflict training. Diane also has trained extensively through the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center on how to work effectively with conflict in churches. She is currently the pastor at Bethel United Church of Christ in Waterford and has a heart for building Interfaith relationships as well as for creating healthy churches. Diane enjoys travel, golf, scuba diving, and landscaping. She and her husband Dean live in Clarkston.
