Wednesday Evenings, Beginning October 16, 7-8pm Fireside Room
Join Pastor Michael in discussing Richard Rohr’s new book Immortal Diamond: The Search for our True Self.
“The power of Immortal Diamond is impossible to exaggerate. With the cutting skills of a surgeon and the heart of a Franciscan, Richard exposes the misperceptions and counterfeits that have shaped our faith. He then promises and delivers a ‘staggering change of perspective’ along with a taste of the intimacy of all love, both human and divine. Every word is a rare gift from a true elder and a worthy guide.” –Paula D’Arcy, author, “Gift of the Red Bird” and “Waking Up to This Day.”
Contact Pastor Michael if you are interested in joining this discussion: email@example.com
