Suggested Reading for January

A book that the Education for Ministry (EfM) Group found inspiring and instructive this past fall was Sewanee Professor Julia Gatta’s recent book Life in Christ, Practicing Christian Spirituality. Chapters engage the reader in the meaning of the sacraments of Baptism and the Holy Eucharist, as well as helpful chapters on the reasons for spiritual practices, spiritual direction, and personal retreats. While the author does not include every spiritual practice, she devotes her attention to those that can be easily adopted. Three copies of this book may be found on the information table at the back of the church. Simply read and return.
