Christian Classics Book Club - Mister God, this is Anna by Fynn.  THE TOUCHING TRUE STORY THAT WON THE HEARTS OF MILLIONS OF READERS AROUND THE WORLD!
Anna was only four years old when Fynn found her on London's fog-shrouded docks. He took her back to his mother's home, and from that first moment, their times together were filled with delight and discovery. Anna had an astonishing ability to ask--and to answer--life's largest questions. Her total openness and honesty amazed all who knew her. She seemed to understand with uncanny certainty the purpose of being, the essence of feeling, the beauty of love. You see, Anna had a very special friendship with Mister God. . . .www.amazon.com

MAKING ROOM FOR WHAT REALLY MATTERS

This particular session deals with a common challenge in today’s fast-paced, highly scheduled life: finding time and space for silence, reflection, and prayer. The schedule will include presentations, silent reflection time, group sharing, and a variety of prayer methods. If your life is filled but unfulfilled, consider setting aside this one Saturday to attend to what really matters.
