It's time to sign up for St. C's Summer Book Club! This summer we will be reading Help, Thanks, Wow, by Anne Lamott. This is a practical, down-to-earth book about prayer: what it is, how to do it, and how to think about praying. From the description:
Readers of all ages have followed and cherished Anne Lamott’s funny and perceptive writing about her own faith through decades of trial and error. And in her new book, Help, Thanks, Wow, she has coalesced everything she knows about prayer to these fundamentals.
It is these three prayers – asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us – that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward. In Help, Thanks, Wow, Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they mean to her and how they have helped, and explores how others have embraced these same ideas.
Insightful and honest as only Anne Lamott can be, Help, Thanks, Wow is the everyday faith book that new Lamott readers will love and longtime Lamott fans will treasure.
We will be putting together two discussion groups for the class - one meeting on Sundays July 14, 21 and 28th after the 10am service, and the other meeting Wednesdays, July 17th, 24th, and 31st at 6:30pm. Click here to sign up!
