Art for the Spirit
Here is an opportunity during Lent to stretch creativity, gain a deeper appreciation for the Holy Spirit at work in our lives, and learn something new. People interested from All Saints and St. James are welcome to attend one or every class! Blessings, Terese TouVelle
“The Shack” book study
In May, we will be starting another combined Parish book study. We will be reading and talking through the novel “The Shack” by Wm. Paul Young. It is readily available at Scott county libraries and major booksellers. This is a great book about how God is present with us in the midst of tragedy, however, it does contain some very tragic scenarios, just be aware. Keep an eye out for updates of when this study will take place.
