Join us for our next discussion.
All are welcome to join in reading/discussing Something Other than God, How I Passionately Sought Happiness and Accidentally Found it, by Jennifer Fulwiler. This book can be found either on the Formed app (free app, download and audio) or in print.
There will be a patio potluck to discuss this inspiring book at the home of Karen McCann on Tuesday, July 6 from 6-8:30 PM. As mentioned above, you may access this book on Formed (free through the parish download) or get a gently used copy for $7, while the supply lasts.

"Countless men and women find themselves astonished, overwhelmed and swept off their feet by God's ravishing grace, but rarely has anyone described the experience as honestly and compellingly as Jennifer Fulwiler." ~Patrick Madrid, author and Relevant Radio host.
"A humorous, uplifting story about one woman's journey from lifelong unbelief to faith and an intimate relationship with Jesus and His Church--Something Other Than God joins science, faith and reason in an engrossing read." ~ Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York.
