“And So I Walked”
Guest Preacher: Rev. Anne Gardner
This Sunday, April 14, the Reverend Anne Gardner will serve as our guest preacher, offering a reflection on her experience of walking the famed Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile path that extends across the width of northern Spain.

She has written a book about this extraordinary journey, recently published by Adelaide Books (NY/Lisbon), titled And So I Walked.  The book recounts both the challenges of completing a long-distance hike as well as the emotional and spiritual undercurrents her time on the trail revealed.  Copies of her book will be available for sale and signature ($20) following the service (cash, check, or VENMO all accepted) and she will also be available for questions and conversation.

Rev. Gardner currently runs the chaplaincy program at Harvard-Westlake, a local private independent high school.  Prior to accepting this position, she spent twelve years as the Director of Spiritual and Religious Life at Phillips Academy, Andover.  For many years she has worked as a freelance writer, crafting pieces for various outlets including NPR, The Boston Globe, The Providence Journal, and the National Catholic Reporter, among others.
