Lenten Book Discussion for Young Adults

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join other young adults (20s & 30s) in a conversation around the book, “For All Who Hunger: Searching for Communion in a Shattered World,” by Emily M. D. Scott.

We’ll gather on Tuesday evenings in Lent from 7:00 – 8:00 pm to discuss this autobiographical narrative about a Lutheran pastor’s journey to build an accepting community in New York City. Starting the church of St. Lydia’s, author Emily united neighbors and friends with an informal dinner church where all were welcome and affirmed. Since the publication of this book, the “dinner church” concept has spread across the U.S.

The facilitator is Rachel Friedland who grew up in the Episcopal Church. She has done youth council in Seattle, Episcopal Service Corps in Minneapolis, and is currently revisiting her roots in King County. A historian, Rachel just submitted a book for publication on the history of the city of Kent. She is active in diocesan young adult events and thrilled to be returning to the Diocese of Olympia to facilitate this book discussion.

We’ll meet via Zoom on these Tuesdays: February 20, 27, March 5, 12, 19. On the final Tuesday, March 26, during Holy Week, we will gather together for our own version of Dinner Church at the Office of the Bishop, 1551 10th Avenue E., Seattle (in Capitol Hill).

A free copy of the book will be sent with your registration. Register here!
