Grace Cathedral Trustee Anna Deavere Smith on Dean Shaw's role:
"Jane is such a major intellect, she has that sense of embrace, I see her as a major convener in San Francisco," Deavere Smith said. "She sees Grace as the city's cathedral and understands that artists have a convening potential around matters that might get flattened out or become footballs in politics."
For Shaw, faith is a deep and abiding sense of the transcendent. Although she has had times of doubt and questioning, the sense of a loving God has accompanied her throughout life. "If we think faith is about certainty, then we can become arrogant and think we know God wholly, and that is very limiting," she said.
