SPIRITUAL WISDOM FOR THE WEEK

Cards by Anne with their thoughtful, spiritual quotations are a favorite among Parish Book Store regulars.  Now Anne has published a book, A Year of Spiritual Companionship: 52 Weeks of Wisdom for a Life of Gratitude, Balance and Happiness which combines the wisdom of spiritual luminaries, life lessons, and insights from social science and neuroscience. For those who find the discipline of daily spiritual reflection overwhelming, this book provides a once-a-week pause for living more thoughtfully.

THE RIGHT STUFF

Send your college student (or grandchild, or niece or nephew) off with the right stuff.  The Parish Book Store has books for the adjustment to college life and for spiritual grounding, crosses to carry and wear, and guardian angels.  We even have books to help parents adjust to their new status.  Come see what else we have, and remember we are open on Fridays from 9 to noon.

WE HAVE TALENT!

ESC has talented artists!  Come by the Book Store, see the beautifully colored postcards and vote for your favorite ($1 per vote—and we are not counting how many times you vote). The winner will be announced in September, and cards will be sent to shut-ins. So don’t delay! For your convenience, we are once more open on Friday mornings, 9 to noon.

WHO IS A SAINT?

Are we looking for saints in all the wrong places?  Nadia Bolz-Weber—ordained, tattooed, profane, and a former stand-up comic—demonstrates in her book  Accidental Saints:  Finding God in All the Wrong People what happens when God shows up in the least likely of people—a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious Bishop and a gun-toting member of the NRA.  Find this book and her memoir Pastrix at the Parish Book Store.

MAKE A CAMPER SMILE!

There is still time (and summer left) to send a care package to a camper.  The Parish Book Store has some non-perishable/non-edible suggestions, especially for someone off to church camp:  crosses by Anne (wooden with lanyards in various styles) and  pewter pocket tokens (a cross with a shamrock or a heart), each a perfect reminder of God’s presence and love, something every camper needs to remember!

AVOID WORK, READ!

Too hot to do yard work, clean or cook.  So read, but first come to the Parish Book Store to see what titles we have—both for the very young and the “seasoned” reader.  Fiction, inspirational, biblical, we have just the right book to take your mind off the weeds, the dust, and the food (or maybe not the food if you find a cookbook).
