ABC's OF FAITH

 

ABC's of Faith was formed out of a desire to have an ongoing opportunity for Adult Bible Conversations (ABC's).  The study material changes from session to session.  Group leaders strive to select material that allows participants to attend as they are able so that missing a gathering doesn't exclude anyone from joining the conversation. 

 

For the summer months, ABC's of Faith will be a book club format. Those interested can read the book selection at their own pace.  We'll gather on the 4th Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM in the church for a group discussion.



The selection for August is Divine by Karen Kingsbury.


Mary Madison is educated and redeemed, a powerful voice in Washington, D.C. But she also has a past that shamed polite society. A survivor of unspeakable horror, Mary has battled paralyzing fear, faithlessness, addiction, and promiscuity. Yet even in her darkest valley, Mary was sustained from afar, prayed over by a grandmother who clung to the belief that God had special plans for Mary.

Now a divine power has set Mary free to bring life-changing hope and love to battered women living in the shadow of the nation’s capital―women like Emma Johnson. A single mother fleeing an abusive relationship, Emma wonders whether there is hope for her and her young daughters. She is desperate, broken, and unloved . . . and tempted to commit the unthinkable. Then Mary introduces Emma to the greatest love of all, greater than any either of them has ever imagined.

With hallmark tenderness and power, Karen Kingsbury weaves a tapestry of life, loss, love, faith―and the miracle of resurrection.
