"Radical Spirit" Book Study

Every 2 weeks on Sunday 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM

As a follow-up to our virtual event with Sister Joan Chittister this summer, Rolling Ridge is hosting an ONLINE book study of Radical Spirit: 12 ways to live a free and authentic life.  This five session study will be held from 3:00-4:30 pm in October and November.

Feeling burnt-out from life, strung-out from social media, and put out by a society that always wants more from you? Beloved nun and social activist Joan Chittister, who appeared on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday, offers a practical, character-building, and inspirational guide to help you take control of your emotional life and redirect your spiritual destiny.

"Freedom from anxiety, worry, and tensions at home and work, comes when we give ourselves to something greater," she argues. "We need to seek wisdom rather than simply facts, to think before speaking, and in turn create respectful communities." With a series of twelve simple rules for healthy spiritual living, Chittister not only reminds us, but pleads with us, to develop enduring values by shifting our attention to how God wants us to live. This book will teach you how to accomplish this.

Whether you've heard Sister Joan speak or not, we hope that you will join us.  Pick up a copy of the book, register online, and join us as we begin this journey together.
