Let’s read a book together this summer. The Rev. Ed Bacon is currently the Interim Rector at St. Luke’s in Atlanta. Prior to that, Ed spent 17 years as Rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California. Originally from the Diocese of Atlanta, Ed grew up in Macon (and was at college at Mercer when Gerry Fosnot attended!) and served several churches in this Diocese. He has written a wonderful book entitled, 8 Habits of Love: Overcome Fear and Transform Your Life. We will be reading it during Sunday School during the summer (9:15 a.m. in the parish hall) and Jane will lead most discussions. If Sunday school isn’t your thing, we urge you to order a copy and read it anyway.
For those who like to plan ahead, the schedule for the class is as follows:
June 23 - Introduction to the Book and a discussion of Chapter 1, “The Habit of Generosity”
