“The Remarkable Ordinary” by Frederick Buechner
Thursday Evenings: March 15 and March 29
At 6:00 p.m.
The Christian life is a pilgrimage of faith. As the wise man says, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” And yet for many, taking that first step can be very intimidating. In his book,
In “The Remarkable Ordinary: How to Stop, Look and Listen to Life,” Presbyterian pastor and teacher Fred Buechner offers some guidelines for the road. In fact, before we take the first step forward, we need only observe what’s around us. The bird calling in the distance, the wind rustling in the leaves overhead, the quirky and unique people that we meet … every day we are in touch with the Divine if we but “stop, look and listen.”
I have had the opportunity to be in Fred’s company a number of times in my ministry. He has been perhaps the most influential teacher in my own faith journey. So, I invite you to join me as we meet every other Thursday throughout Lent to study this delightful book.
Our next meeting is March 15. We gather at 6:00 p.m. for a soup supper and discussion that will conclude around 7:30 p.m.
