The Reverend Cathy Tyndall Boyd
The Reverend Cathy Tyndall Boyd is a Missouri native and lifelong Episcopalian, who first heard the call to the priesthood as a child. Along the way she acquired a journalism degree, a priest husband and two fine children, now grown. She is convinced, to quote Blessed Dumbledore, that words are our most inexhaustible source of magic, both in preaching and in religious communications.
