Our Cultural Calendar is one people’s favorite aspects of our service and it’s always fun to see who’s going to read it. This Sunday in LA–12noon at Bootleg Theater—our reader will be the one and only Bahni Turpin. I’ve known Bahni since my LA theater days and am a huge fan and admirer–in addition to her chops, Bahni’s a huge believer in community and an advocate for the health of all people. So happy she’s going to be with us this Sunday for SUGAR.
