Event Description

Join Us for Story-telling, Hymn singing and Conversation

Author Anna Redsand will be reading from her spiritual memoir To Drink from the Silver Cup: From Faith Through Exile and Beyond. This soulful story of a lesbian raised in the Christian Reformed Church by missionary parents in the Navajo reservation describes her courageous journey in search of a faith community. 

Wonderful descriptions of life in the reservation and her love of family and community are juxtaposed with the realization that her sexual orientation will exclude her from these relationships.

“From Navajo dwellings in New Mexico to Scandinavia to the evangelical Midwest, Anna Redsand’s beautiful, heroic story is for anyone who has ever felt outcast from a community they love, and tossed into the desert of doubt and despair. Here you will find spiritual hope embodied, and the promise that, no matter where we are lost, it is possible to find our way home to new communities of faith, compassion, healing and belonging.” 

– John T. Price, author, Daddy Long Legs: The Natural Education of a Father
