If my spiritual tribe was the X-Men, Phyllis Tickle would be our Professor X. Phyllis turns 80 today, and here are some of the impossible things she’s done for me:
2. She showed me that fixed-hour prayer can be a wonderful and life-giving spiritual practice.
3. She made me look forward to getting white hair, because it will make me look a little more like her.
Happy birthday, Phyllis! We think you’re neat.
