Our next Laidback Book Club begins on March 19. We will read Rachel Held Evans’ last book, Wholehearted Faith. Please purchase a paper or digital copy, join us on Facebook or read along with us, and then join in for a community discussion on May 23 at 7:00 pm. Contact Lyn Pajk for more information about how to join the group.
“At the time of her tragic death in 2019, Rachel was working on a new book about wholeheartedness. With the help of her close friend and author Jeff Chu, that work-in-progress has been woven together with some of her other unpublished writings into a rich collection of essays that ask candid questions about the stories we’ve been told—and the stories we tell—about our faith, our selves, and our world… An unforgettable, moving, and intimate book.”
Alone we are strong… together we are stronger.
These recordings are from a presentation given at a local parish in January 2001. The audio has been edited in order to enhance the quality, but there are some sections that could not be recovered. Particularly, in the Question & Answer section.
We hope you enjoy this presentation and come away appreciating Mass and participating more fully.
If you enjoy walking or jogging by yourself or with others why not turn it into a time of prayer so that you can exercise your body and your soul at the same time?!
If you are new to the Rosary on the Go, Blessed Sacrament will provide rosary rings for each participant and a weekly prayer intention based on Pope Francis’s monthly prayer intention. Please contact Lyn to request your rosary ring(s) and list of weekly intentions. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said, “GO into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature…” On your mark, get set, GO!!!!
