Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
All women of the Collaborative are invited to join us on Tuesday, December 5 at 6:30pm at St. John for our December “Evening for Women” program. Our featured speaker this month will be Dr. Colleen M. Griffith, Professor of the Practice of Theology at Boston College’s School of Theology and Ministry, where she serves as Faculty Director of Spirituality Studies and Coordinator of the Practical/Pastoral Area. Dr. Griffith will be sharing an Advent offering – Making Haste Into the Hill Country: An Encounter of Blessing.
After our program in the Lower Chapel we will gather in Powers Hall for a potluck dinner – please bring a dish or beverage to share! Invite a friend or neighbor to come along!
