Description

Join Fr. Jonathan for the start of his summer series "Rector's Book Choice" for an evening of good conversation and reflection on Wednesday, August 15 from 6:30 - 8:00 PM to discuss Denial is My Spiritual Practice by Rachel G. Hackenberg and Martha Spong. A new publication from Church Publishing, it is described thusly:

A companion for the wondering and struggling

Faith is more than a confession. It is the ongoing work of coming to terms with God and with life, not only for us but for Christians everywhere who flock to churches and to retreats and to books in search of answers—or at least for the assurance that they are not alone in the struggle that can lead to renewed hope.

“With insight, gasp-generating honesty, and wit, Hackenberg and Spong help readers appreciate how every event, every interaction, and every feeling can become an opportunity to learn more about living a spiritual life.”
—Meredith Gould, author, Desperately Seeking Spirituality: A Field Guide to Practice

We know it's right during dinner time so feel free to "bring your own dinner," or if you'd prefer to grill, bring yourself a hamburger, or some hot dogs, or a piece of chicken! Soft drinks and iced tea will be provided.

If you are interested in attending, please let Chelsea DiDonato know by emailing her at chelsea@stjohnsessex.org or by phoning her at 860 767 8095 ext. 10.
