Wisdom Class
All Saints' Episcopal Church – Please join us for discussion and reading of Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy by Anne Lamott on Tuesdays or Thursdays in the Wisdom Classes at 10:00 am in the Oratory..

The book has a little swearing, some complaining with laughter, and bright spots of discovering God's grace in different moments. Books may be purchased from Jan Hilton for $12 and are also available as e-books. Please join us in July while we chat about Anne Lamott's newest book.
