Author’s Talk/Reading: Sara Miles on CITY OF GOD: Faith in the Streets

Monday, February 10, 2014

In CITY OF GOD: Faith in the Streets, Sara Miles recounts in vivid detail the sacred ritual of taking ashes out to the streets of San Francisco’s Mission district on Ash Wednesday 2012, exploring the profound implications of touching strangers with a reminder of common mortality. As the story unfolds, Sara Miles also reflects on life in her city over the last two decades, where the people of God suffer and rejoice, building community amid the grit and beauty of the streets.

Miles is the founder and director of The Food Pantry, and serves as Director of Ministry at St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Her recent books include Take This Bread: A Radical Conversion and Jesus Freak: Feeding Healing Raising the Dead. Learn more at This is her only New York City appearance.
