Announcing an Early Summer Book Study with Father Jessee
Grounded: Finding God in the World – A Spiritual Revolution
by Diana Butler Bass
Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 PM
30 May – 27 June 2018
This summer we will examine the continuing trend of people moving from being 'religious' to being 'spiritual.' Grounded, published in 2015, drills down deeply and broadly into the ongoing spiritual renewal in the world about us. This is a follow-on book to Christianity After Religion, also by Diana Butler Bass, which we read and discussed during Lent.
Grounded continues to explore cultural turns as Diana Butler Bass unpacks how people are finding new spiritual ground by discovering and embracing God everywhere in the world around us—in the soil, the water, the sky, in our homes and neighborhoods, and in the global commons. Faith is no longer a matter of mountaintop experience or institutional practice; instead, people are connecting with God through the environment in which we live. Grounded guides readers through our contemporary spiritual habitat as it points out and pays attention to the ways in which people experience a God who animates creation and community.
