Join the Parish Book Store Book Group in reading Hallelujah, Anyhow!, a memoir by the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris, the first woman elected to the episcopacy within the Anglican Communion.  The book is available in the Parish Book Store.  Our group is open to all, and our discussions are lively, but always civil.  The date of our discussion of this book will be after Easter, so you have plenty of time to get the book and read!

Gifts of the Dark Wood:  Seven Blessings for the Soulful Skeptics (and Other Wanderers) is the topic of Fr. Cameron’s Lenten discussion at 5:30 p.m. each Sunday in Lent.  The “dark wood” is generally a place to fear and avoid, but it is also “the surest place to meet God.” Those feelings of being lost, tempted and alone are the gifts of the Dark Wood because they cause one to probe, question and discover.  Find the book, along with other Lenten resources at the Parish Book Store.
