‘Return To The Root’ Book Discussion – Thursday, Feb. 24 @ 6:30-8:30 PM
Sr. Roberta Bussan leads a discussion of Joyce Rupp’s newest book, Return to the Root: Reflections on the Inner Life. Rupp offers meditative, uplifting reflections – grown out of the seasons, the Church’s liturgical life, and the small moments that adorn our days – that escort us through the year. With each reflection, we shift beyond the immediate moment to see the timeless truths within, including choosing to hold on to hope, trusting how God speaks to us and how we experience the Divine, and recognizing that there is always something for which to be grateful.
