Last week (June 8) marked the birthday of author and noted Christian leader Rachel Held Evans.
Rachel played a crucial role in making the Christian faith hospitable to those on its margins — those who had been wounded by faith, those who had questions and doubts, those in the LGBTQIA community, and many more. She died tragically and unexpectedly in 2019 at the young age of 37. Rachel was an acquaintance that we initially met at our very first Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin University in 2010, and who was always very encouraging and supportive of our work at The Englewood Review. We miss her, and know that many others do too.
In remembrance, we offer a series of our favorite brief Rachel Held Evans videos …
These clips offer us the chance to see and to hear her again, and to appreciate her many contributions to Christian faithfulness in the 21st century.
