The Very Rev. Tracey Lind
The Very Rev. Tracey Lind is a newly retired Episcopal priest and city planner whose ministry has included work for social and environmental justice, interfaith relations, sustainable urban development, arts and culture, and progressive theology. Most recently, Tracey’s ministry has extended to include the spiritual insights and lessons she has gained from a life complicated by dementia.
On Nov. 8, 2016 (Election Day), Tracey was diagnosed with early-stage Frontotemporal Dementia. This diagnosis hasn’t stopped her from fully immersing in what life has to offer — and what she has to give. From October to December last year, she was invited to speak at seven European churches in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland.
For 17 years (2000-2017), Tracey served as Dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, a thriving and diverse urban congregation, a center for arts and music, and a gathering place for those devoted to Cleveland and its future. Trinity Cathedral is part of Trinity Commons, an award-winning, environmentally sustainable, urban campus developed under Dean Lind’s leadership. During her tenure, Dean Lind also led the establishment of Greater Cleveland Congregations and a number of other faith-based and civic initiatives. She also is the author of Interrupted by God: Glimpses from the Edge. Click here to read more.
