UNSTUCK: Like a Gift from the Hand of God

UNSTUCK is all about freeing ourselves from our fallenness and the brokenness of lives lived ignorant of, or inattentive to, God’s presence in the Universe—becoming free enough to thrive in life now and to reign with Christ in the future. We are glad you are joining us!

Ladies, join us on June 29 at 10:00am to discuss the book Once Upon a Wardrobe by Patti Callahan. The book discussion will be led by Betty Ellsberry. Once Upon a Wardrobe is a tender enchanting tribute to the power of story and the myriad ways it can both break and heal our hearts. It is the story of a dying boy and a loving sister and the path a treasured story takes from one heart to the other. Perfect and timely and beautiful and poignant, it is everything the world needs right now.

O Lord, make us have perpetual love and reverence for your holy Name, for you never fail to help and govern those whom you have set upon the sure foundation of your loving-kindness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
