An Eve-nt to remember

Grace Cathedral’s famous Ghiberti doors, labyrinths, and stained glass have provided the backdrop to such guests as Dr. Jane Goodall, the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, Isabel Allende, Carlos Santana, Pharoah Sanders, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Sandra Day O’Connor, among others. And next week, Eve Ensler- the Tony Award winning playwright, activist, V-Day Founder and author of The Vagina Monologues.

Eve has chosen San Francisco's most notable church to deliver her first talk since surviving cancer and
will speak about her newest work, entitled CongoCancer, scheduled for release in late 2012.

Grace Cathedral is an especially sentimental and special place to host this event, which is (part of) why I am flying out to S.F. to work as a volunteer. The Cathedral is home to a community where the best of Episcopal Christian tradition embraces innovation and open-minded conversation, where inclusion is expected and people of all faiths are welcomed. To simplify, it has both an indoor and outdoor labyrinth, plus Episco-disco nights!

So, if you live in the area, please join me! Tickets are still available and can be purchased here.
Or, if you're into it and want to get involved, go here to learn about hosting your own eve-nt in your city.
