Book Discussion: An Altar in the World
March 19 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am
An Altar in the World Discussion Schedule, Lent 2023
Sunday mornings in Lent, 9:15-10:15, we will discuss parts of the book “An Altar in the World” by Barbara Brown Taylor for adult education and a semon series throughout Lent. We encourage you to purchase a copy of this book for reflection and to gain deeper meaning from these events. Peace will also purchase a few copies for congregants to borrow if finances are a concern. The chapters have been selected in this order to correlate loosely with the gospel readings for each day. You’ll get more out of the discussion if you read the chapters and the Bible passage ahead of time, but if you don’t read, come anyway.
