Four two-hour gatherings to explore spirituality and our Christian faith as articulated by Elizabeth A. Johnson in her book: Abounding in Kindness, Writings for the People of God.

Reading Johnson’s book and sharing deeply with others would be a holy and wonderful preparation for Advent and Christmas. Deepening our understanding through a small group discussion. Sharing prayer, insights, and faith with one another.
