Leadership Team

The purpose of the Mosaic Leadership Team (MLT) is to lead the Mosaic Bay community during our transition from being pastor-led to community-led. We aim to provide a structure that allows the members of the community to contribute in creative and practical ways. To listen, empathize, and encourage is the framework from which the MLT works as we guide the community in building relationships and connection.

We invite all who are interested in being a part of our community to gather with us on Sunday mornings, join the weekly MLT meetings on Wednesday evenings, or reach out to contributors directly.

Emily Haliday

Emily was raised Episcopalian and fell out of the church-going habit in her 20s. After becoming established in her career (as a patent attorney), she began to feel like there must be more to life than working (a lot) and playing (some). She read Zen and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, took up yoga (which involved reading scripture, as well as practicing physical postures), and studied with a non-dual teacher, whose teachings were similar to those of Advaita Vedanta. Emily then married a Sunday school teacher and found her way back to a progressive Christianity, where she has been struck by the parallels between Christ’s teachings and the truths of the other traditions encountered on her way back to her own. What drew Emily to Mosaic Bay and keeps her serving is our unique community of people committed to authenticity, spiritual growth, and helping one another appreciate and share our gifts with our families, friends, and communities.
