Gospel Medicine - An Antidote to Pandemic Isolation

Sundays at 4:00pm
Join us each Sunday at 4:00pm for a brief time of in-person conversation, meditation and prayer. Bring your mask and a chair and we will gather together - six feet apart! - on the parking lot in the shade of our beautiful church.

We will enrich our souls exploring the book Gospel Medicine, a book of sermons written by Barbara Brown Taylor, author of last year's all church read, Holy Envy. Each week Pastor Hannah will lead us in a conversation about one of Taylor's sermons. Each chapter in the book is a different sermon. Each one is concise, very meaningful and can be read in less than 30 minutes. Music and prayer will be a part of our time together.
