Alongside ministry, Nate’s other calling is writing. His poems, essays, and translations appear widely, and his latest book of poetry, Anyone, was published in 2015. He lives just north of Berkeley with his wife Kit Novotny (a minister at First Congregational Church of Berkeley) and their little terrier named Increase.
