The Beacons of Larkin Street
by Judith Favor
There’s a lot to love about the women of Saint Lydia’s in San Francisco. After getting rid of a predatory male pastor, they found an ordained woman to shepherd their flock. The five Beacons, their prickly minister and a young Mexican prostitute all took risks, made mistakes and followed their hearts to set a wild new course for their historic interracial, interdenominational congregation.
