Norris blends history, theology, storytelling and memoir in this fascinating book which encourages us to embrace ancient traditions and find faith in our contemporary world. The class will meet on Fridays in Lent, beginning February 22, from 12-1 in the Rectory Library. Please order your own book (used for as little as $.01 on Amazon) and look for the vocabulary you'd like us to talk about. Please talk with Julia (667-9529) or Sarah (244-9496) for more information.
