Many readers have followed Anne Lamott’s funny and perceptive writing about her own faith through decades of trial and error. In Help, Thanks, Wow, she has coalesced everything she knows about prayer into these fundamentals. It is these three prayers – asking for assistance, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us – that can get us through the day and show us the way forward.
Our study will meet every other week for three weeks – one session each for Help, Thanks, and Wow. We will meet at 6 pm on March 8, March 22, and April 5. We invite you to join us!
