BOOK STUDY ON RADICAL SPIRIT: LIVE A FREE AND AUTHENTIC LIFE BY JOAN CHITTISTER

Leader: Rev. Ann McClellan 

Tuesdays, 6:30 pm

(April 13, 20, 27, May 4, and 11)

In-Person, Room 233 (with face masks, physical distancing, and limited numbers)

“Freedom from anxiety, worry, and tensions at home and work, comes when we give ourselves to something greater,” Joan Chittister argues. “We need to seek wisdom rather than simply facts, to think before speaking, and in turn create respectful communities.” With a series of twelve simple rules for healthy spiritual living, Chittister not only reminds us but pleads with us, to develop enduring values by shifting our attention to how God wants us to live. This book will teach you how to accomplish this.

You will need to purchase your own book and read pages 1-36 before our first class gathering.
