Save the Date!

Ever wondered why some things felt so tempting? Or why people do hurtful things? Bishop William Willimon’s  Sinning Like a Christian: A New Look at the 7 Deadly Sins takes a look at the nature

of the classical seven deadly sins in our modern world. Bring your lunch and join us on Mondays starting June 1st from noon to 1 as we read through Willimon’s book and discuss how pride, envy, anger, sloth, greed, gluttony, and lust still affect our lives today.  We’d love to see you there. Will you join us? Books will be available for purchase in the office as we get closer to the study.
