In Season 2, Tommy Gaebel interviews Jan Phillips on chapters of her new book Still On Fire- Field Notes from a Queer Mystic. In Chapter one of Jan's Memoir, she opened up about life in the church, what drew her to the desire to join a convent and the experiences that eventually lead to her dismissal. It's a powerful, moving, and deeply personal walk into the lives, relationships, challenges, and commitments of Novices, Postulates, Nuns and their Superiors in the 1960's.
Listen to Jan explain what drew her into the service of God, what eventually pushed her out, and what she took with her. She also reads a poem from the book's introduction: My Gratitude to Catholicism.
This episode is the perfect reading companion to the first 2 chapters of her latest book. Listen in and enjoy.
