The Intersection of Fiction & Spirituality – Sacred Stories

An Explore Spirituality 6-part series lead by Jean Ward

Wednesday 7:00 p.m. - to 8:30 p.m.

October 20 through November 24.


It is often in the ordinariness of our lives that true courage is found and the sacred known. 

Each week we will explore these themes through the work of a novelist and one of their books. All the writers below are concerned about actual lived experience and the dislocation we experience from the time we are born. Lives are not easy but hope somehow prevails.

You do not have to have read the book in order to participate.
