Event description
Real-world Spirituality: Learning from St. Augustine the Pastor

About this Event

We know Augustine as one of the church’s greatest theologians. But in fact he spent his entire life as a pastor and, as a bishop, pastoring pastors. This conversation will draw on Augustine’s sermons and letters to introduce us to the “spiritual realism” of the Doctor of Grace.

The first 100 people to RSVP will receive a free copy of James K.A. Smith's new book, On the Road with Saint Augustine.
