The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.
- Frederick Buechner

The Rev'd John Branson is leading a five-week series in Lent on the writing and “autobiographical theology” of Frederick Buechner, one of the liveliest and best-read writers on faith, theology, and the accessibility of God in the 20th/21st centuries. Meetings will begin with a simple supper of soup and salad, followed by discussion. Learn more and REGISTER!
