Where is God in all this? – Have you ever struggled to find God in the ups and downs of life? Barbara Brown Taylor has authored an extraordinary book, An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith, about her own search for God in the ordinary moments of life, and her search in those harder times of pain and difficulty. She is among the most gifted writers on spirituality today, and she offers both practical advice on finding the sacred each day, and a commentary on her own challenges in doing so. Rector Jim Richardson will lead a discussion circle on Wednesday evenings on her book. Participants can purchase the book at most bookstores or a on-line booksellers.

(3) Listening as Spiritual Practice: Meets from 6:45pm - 7:45pm in the Lounge

In this series we will explore the Christian practice of "listening" -- to one another, to our own hearts and to God's leading. Please join us for any evenings you are able.
