2015 Lenten Series

Faith in Words: St. John’s Writers Reflect on the Spiritual Discipline of Writing

One definition of a writer is someone who struggles with writing. Put in that light we may all be writers!

This Lent we have invited some of St. John’s writers to talk about their books and the spiritual discipline of writing. Five different St. John’s authors will talk about their work and give us some insight to the process of writing and their inspiration.

Starting February 25th through March 25th we will share a meal and hear from our St. John’s writers. Dinner starts at 6:00 p.m. and the program begins at 7:00 p.m. Childcare is available.
