Fall Book Study–September 16, 23, 30 and October 7, 14

August 22, 2019

Monday evenings, September 16, 23 and 30; October 7 and 14; 6 – 7:30 pm

Our Fall Book Study will be a five-week discussion of The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile.
This book has the potential to open your eyes to your own personality and help you zero in on your own unique strengths and weaknesses through the lens of the Enneagram. The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system similar to the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory but with an additional spiritual component. Knowing about your Enneagram type can be transformational in your relationship with yourself, with others, and with God.

Classes will be led by Rev. MaryAnne Korsch.

Signup sheets are in the Narthex and books will be available in the church office.
