Today we celebrate the 80th birthday of Phyllis Tickle, a friend and mentor to so many all around the church world. I’ve already said a lot of my appreciations in events over the past couple years and a book that I edited, Phyllis Tickle: Evangelist of the Future.

There are various ways for you to wish Phyllis a happy birthday. You can do it in the comment section here, you can post something on her Facebook Page, or, best of all, you can publish something on your own blog using the directions below.

I’ll be sure that Phyllis sees all of the good wishes that you send her way.

See You in the Big Apple


I’ll be in NYC this weekend for three events with Phyllis Tickle, Jon Sweeney, and many other friends. You can find more info here. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you.
