Easter Season Book Study with Fr. Phil - hybrid event
Tuesdays at 7:00 pm
May 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
Join Father Phil on the 5 Tuesdays in May to delve into Falling Into Grace, Exploring our Inner life with God by John Newton. "Jesus was quite clear that we must lose our life before we find it. This book gives a hopeful and realistic look at what losing our life entails, articulating how "growth" in the Christian life is not our ascent to God but the process by which our eyes are opened to the beauty God has already given to us. It is a book about descending into God, and into our own inner depths, about the deep waters of the Christian faith."
"We live in a world that values productivity and success, and we vainly imagine that God expects us to be spiritually productive and successful, too. It doesn't matter how much we talk about grace, our conversation is often narrowly focused on what we need to do for God - so much so that we often block the work God longs to do in us. This book does not articulate God's work as a process by which we become spiritually strong, but rather as the process by which we embrace our weakness as the place where we most full experience God's perfect strength"
The Easter Book Study will be hybrid - we will meet both in person at church and via Zoom - your choice. Everyone should register for the Zoom link - "just in case" something comes up and you want to join virtually for a session or 2. Copies of the book will be available for purchase for $20 each in the Narthex. You may also order a book/ebook through churchpublishing.org or your favorite bookstore.
