Summer Book Club

You are invited to our Summer Book Club beginning Monday, June 18 at 1 p.m. in Glover Hall. Embracing the Way of Jesus is a collection of excerpts from the homilies and writings of Pope Francis, all centering on Christianity as a way of life – or, as the earliest Christians would have understood it, “the Way.” Through the Pope’s meditations on Scripture, we pause to consider essential aspects of discipleship such as The Way of the Cross, The Way of Prayer, The Way of Children, The Way of the Poor and more. For anyone desiring to live out the faith in a way that can truly transform and heal our hearts and our world, Embracing the Way is the perfect place to start.
