Novel Theology

Literature lends shape to our understanding of ideas like love, compassion, forgiveness, redemption. In other words, those markers we encounter in following Christ. All are welcome to join us for any or all of our Novel Theology book discussions this coming year.

We meet mostly third Wednesdays of each month, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Parish House 307.
