Becca Stevens Text Reviews
Becca Stevens has been a blessing in my life both professionally and personally. The times we have partnered together to bring ritual and faith to others from our community have been some of the most gratifying moments of my work here in Nashville. Becca's humble presence with others and willingness to hold space and insist upon equity for all inspire and instigate me to action. She is truly about love as the ultimate healing agent.
Rabbi Laurie Rice - Congregation Micah
Becca is a poet and a prophet. Her words reach deep into our hearts and awaken courage and tears most of us don't know are there. She convicts us not just of our need to stand with and as the most marginalized in this world but of the deep, deep joy of doing so. She has a power that comes from the deep integrity of living exactly what she believes - that love is the most powerful force for social change in the universe. In my 20+ years as a priest, I do not have a more treasured colleague, friend and partner in ministry than Becca Stevens. She is a constant source of inspiration and strength. Every time I am in her presence I am changed for the better.
The Rev. Mike Kinman - Rector, All Saints Episcopal Church
Becca Stevens and her Thistle Farms sisters are remarkable. They opened up, poured themselves out, and shared their stories. So many moments of grace when they described the #LoveHeals ministry and brought us into the circle.
Dana Sparks - Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana
As I would have expected, Becca killed it! Very positive feedback from the crowd and I believe we just about purchased everything they had brought to sell.
