“Things Seen and Unseen” • by Nora Gallagher
The next Blue Skies Book Study is scheduled for April 28 in the undercroft at St. James Episcopal Church. The announcement is made now, so that everyone will have a chance to read the selection, “Things Seen and Unseen: A Year Lived in Faith”, by Nora Gallagher. Copies of the book are available at the Carnegie Library, the St. James Library and online. The Rev. Betsy Porter will lead the discussion. Commenting about the selection, she said:
Lay person, journalist, seeker and preacher, Nora Gallagher reminds us in her spiritual memoir, Things Seen and Unseen: A Year Lived in Faith that we often find the sacred in the ordinary when we look with new eyes. She journeys through this year guided by the seasons of the church calendar yet surrounded by the demands of a secular calendar and the realities of life. She avoids the trap of quick fixes as she seeks instead the gifts born of work, doubt, searching and grace.
Plan now to join the group on Tuesday, April 28 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the church. All are welcome, so encourage your friends and neighbors to participate.
St. James' strives to be a welcoming and diverse community, offering a variety of worship, fellowship, education, and ministry opportunities.
