Jan Phillips has written an intriguing memoir about her deep desire to become a nun and her heartbreaking dismissal from the convent because she was gay. Thereafter she traveled the world on a one-woman peace mission and supported causes for women and the Black community. Her Livingkindness Foundation runs a school in Nigeria. “My activism is my spirituality in running shoes,” she writes.
Her story is funny, heartbreaking, and wry. Meet the author and hear the backstory of her wrestling match with God and the Catholic Church, coming out to her mother, and finding a spiritual practice she could live by. Phillips will chat with Rev. Ellen Debenport then answer your questions in this live online event.
Presenters: Author Jan Phillips and Rev. Ellen Debenport
Price: Event is free.
