The author of Radical Welcome: Embracing God, The Other and the Spirit of Transformation – as well as The Episcopal Way and the upcoming book The Church Cracked Open: Disruption, Decline and New Hope for Beloved Community – she has directed mission and evangelism work at General Theological Seminary and served as a canon in the Diocese of Long Island; founded The Crossing, a ground-breaking church within St. Paul’s Cathedral in Boston; and led numerous church-wide renewal efforts. A native of Frankfort, Kentucky, and a graduate of both Episcopal Divinity School and Harvard Divinity School, she makes her home today in New York's Harlem neighborhood.
