What the Spirit-Wisdom of the Mystics Reveals to Us Today

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 | 6:30pm

Jesus gave Peter the mandate to “Feed my sheep” (John 21: 17) and there is no better way to do this than an invitation to a 4-week discussion on mysticism and to break bread together.  In this spirit, we will gather in St. Joseph's Chapel for dinner, a lecture and small-group discussion.


Vintage Saints and Sinners:  25 Christians who Transformed My Faith

Karen Wright Marsh writes, “This book is a journal from my spiritual pilgrimage: scribbled confessions, quick descriptions of tales from the lives of vintage Christians—with their struggles, joys, and revelations—and by opening up about the lessons I’ve learned, you’ll discover that God’s saving, guiding, transforming grace is here for you as well.” Vintage Saints and Sinners: 25 Christians who Transformed My Faith will be on hand to purchase and for Ms. Marsh to sign. Marsh is executive director and cofounder of Theological Horizons, a university ministry that has advanced theological scholarship at the intersection of faith, thought, and life since 1991. She lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.
