“This book was written with three audiences in mind: those who are unsure of what they believe in but are searching for meaning, steadiness, and some kind of faith to live by; religious persons who are wrestling with the answers that their churches once gave them, are finding them lacking, but still want those same answers to meet the challenges of their present lives; and those who want to deepen their faith and enter more deliberately and intentionally into the more adult challenges into which authentic faith invites us.”~Quote taken from Wrestling with God: Finding Hope in our Daily Struggles. This program will take place in three sessions. Choose either to attend afternoons from 1-2:30 or evenings from 6:30-8. Facilitator: Maureen Heverin, SC
