Guest Preacher, The Reverend Anne Gardner
A recent transplant to southern California, The Reverend Anne Gardner currently runs the chaplaincy program at nearby Harvard-Westlake, a private independent high school. Prior to accepting this most recent call, she spent twelve years as the Director of Spiritual and Religious Life at Phillips Academy, Andover, a boarding school located outside of Boston.
A minister and freelance writer, her work has appeared in The Boston Globe, The Providence Journal, NPR, and the National Catholic Reporter, among others. Gardner has also recently published her debut book, And So I Walked, which recounts her experience of walking the famed Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile journey across the width of northern Spain.
Reverend Gardner will speak about the experience of pilgrimage as a spiritual discipline.
