Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I’ve Loved by Kate Bowler
Jump into a short 4-week series on a truly great book! Join us by zoom on Sunday mornings May 8 to May 29, 9:15-10 AM at this Zoom link (Meeting ID: 779 9370 1820, Passcode: P83zhU).
Synopsis: Kate Bowler is a Duke Divinity School professor studying the prosperity gospel, which sees fortune as a blessing from God and misfortune as a mark of God’s disapproval. At thirty-five, everything in her life seems to point toward “blessing”– job, marriage, newborn son. Then she is diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. What does it mean to die, she wonders, in a society that insists everything happens for a reason? Kate is stripped of this certainty only to discover that without it, life is hard but beautiful in a way it never has been before.
