Holy Conversation

Join us for "Holy Conversation" every Wednesday!

We begin our meetings by sharing concerns for which we would like the other participants to pray. Those concerns become the intercessions as we join in Noonday prayers. Then we discuss the book. And, finally, those of us whose schedules permit enjoy lunch together at a restaurant.

We are currently reading Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz-Weber.
