Enrichment: Online Book Club – “The Great Spiritual Migration” (MORNING)
October 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Facilitated by Marian Monahan, BA
Get ready to be inspired by this “refreshingly honest” and hopeful book, “The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion Is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian.” Author Brian McLaren, an important voice in contemporary spirituality/religion, proposes that “notwithstanding the profound cultural and political tumult of the moment, Christian faith is not dying. Rather it is embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime spiritual shift, flourishing with enormous promise for us and for our planet.” The Spirit is alive and well!
Participants will receive a reading selection each week, then share thoughts during a 90-minute Zoom gathering. Choose to attend Tuesdays at 10am or Wednesdays at 7pm. Purchase the book on your own in advance.
Free to attend, but advance registration is required. Once registered, you will meet at the same time every week, Oct. 6-Nov. 10. Limited to 20 participants for the purposes of discussion.
