Sacred Journey Reading Series

Join us for this enjoyable and thought provoking 4-Week Book Reading/Discussion series.

Four Wednesday Evenings
November 28 - December 19 

Hospitality - 6:15
Discussion -  6:30 - 8:00pm

In "FLUNKING SAINTHOOD - A Year of Breaking the Sabbath, Forgetting to Pray, and Still Loving My Neighbor," Jana Riess shares her year-long quest to become more saintly by talking twelve spiritual practices, including fasting, fixed-hour prayer, gratitude, Sabbath-keeping, the Jesus Prayer, and generosity. Although she begins with great plans for success, she finds to her growing humiliation that she is failing - not just at some practices, but at every single one. What emerges is a vulnerable story of the quest for perfection and the reality of failure, which turns out to be a valuable spiritual practice in and of itself.

"Surprising and freeing, fun and funny, full of wisdom ... the best book on the practices of the spiritual life that I have read in a long, long time."  

- Lauren F. Winner, author of Girl Meets God and Mudhouse Sabbath
