Get Inspired by Rachel Held Evans

The author Rachel Held Evans with former Ascension parishioner, the Rev. Jenny Landis Owen (March 25, 2017)

Throughout July, the Summer Book Group will be reading and discussing Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again, by Rachel Held Evans. This is a book about telling and inhabiting stories — bible stories, our own stories of faith, doubt, and wrestling for a blessing. RHE, as she is affectionately known, died earlier this year from complications of the flu at the age of 37. Her writings about her own journey of faith have been a companion, challenge and inspiration to many readers, and hopefully will be engaging for us as well. Mother Liz will lead the conversation, and we’ll meet in the Rear Parlor after the 6:00 evening Eucharist (about 6:45). The book is readily available from Amazon and elsewhere. Please read the introduction and the first 2 chapters before the first meeting.
