Rev. Becca Stevens returns to Marble to share about her latest book, Practically Divine, in which she focuses on a message that says, "There is no secret formula to experiencing the sacred in our lives – it just takes practice and practicality. Signs of love abound everywhere: walking in the woods, in a sacred building, or in a dusty refugee camp. When we allow ourselves to embrace both ordinary and extraordinary experiences, we can feel the divine anywhere." She’ll also update us on the ongoing work of Thistle Farms community that works to heal, empower, and employ female survivors of human trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Becca is an Episcopal priest, author, and founder and president of Thistle Farms in Nashville.
