Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt
by Anne Rice (yes, that Anne Rice!)
Wednesdays at 10:00am in the Parish House
With the Holy Land in turmoil, seven-year-old Jesus and his family leave Egypt for the dangerous road home to Jerusalem. As they travel, the boy tries to unlock the secret of his birth and comprehend his terrifying power to work miracles.
Anne Rice's dazzling, kaleidoscopic novel, based on the gospels and the most respected New Testament scholarship, summons up the voice, the presence, and the words of Jesus, allowing him to tell his own story as he struggles to grasp the holy purpose of his life.
Join us Wednesdays at 10am in the Parish House living room for discussion of this remarkable book. (And join us for Morning Prayer at 9am in the Chapel, if you are able!)
Everyone is welcome.
