About The Event

The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd (2020)

a work of historical fiction centering on an imagined wife of Jesus of Nazareth

Join Pastor Marisa to read together a new book by Sue Monk Kidd, award-winning author of The Secret Life of Bees, Travelling with Pomegranates, and more. In this book, Sue Monk Kidd considers the human life of Jesus based on scriptural and ancient non-canonical writings about him, as seen through the eyes of a creative, faith-filled 1st century woman who loves him. This story is well researched and reverential, beautifully told and sure to bring to life for us our own wonderings about who Jesus may really have been on this earth, and will surely evoke sharing of our own longings for meaning and the holy in this life!

Pastor Marisa will bring many of the bible passages and ancient writing excerpts that Sue Monk Kidd is referring to in her book to deepen the experience, as well as share a Study Guide and Q&A from the author herself.

Next Discussions:

Sunday, March 21st @ 2pm: Part 3 Alexandria

Wednesday, March 31st @ 7pm: Part 4 Jerusalem & beyond

All gatherings will be held on Zoom (contact for the zoom link or for a copy of the book.)  We have copies of the book in the church office that we can make available for pick up or delivery! Donations welcome up to $14 for your copy.
