Spiritual Growth Reading for May

White Picket Fences: Turning toward love in a world divided by privilege by Amy Julia Becker

Author Amy Julia Becker looks carefully at her privileged southern upbringing to understand how she engages with the world, and what she hopes to do differently in her life as she raises her children, one of whom is a special needs child, in the northeast. The challenge of welcoming everyday stresses and joys of motherhood, as well as acting as advocate for her differently blessed daughter, encourages the reader to look more closely at how each of us engages with all our neighbors. Becker is a popular guest speaker, so your feedback about hosting her at St. Paul’s, Ivy would be welcome. Contact Debbie Scott to give feedback.
