Are you living the abundant life?
An abundant life – not an abundance life. There’s a significant difference between the two. Many of us middle-class North Americans are living the abundance life. In his new book, Quaker author J. Brent Bill posits that an abundant life is about more than material abundance and is found in four essential ideals. These ideals can guide us into the life we desire if we learn to incorporate them into our daily lives. Those four ideals are beauty, truth, life, and love. J. Brent Bill has been described as “….a substantial spiritual guide, but never in a flashy way. Think of…. oh, perhaps Mister Rogers Meets the Dalai Lama.”
Join us for an evening with Brent as he reads from his latest book and invites us to look at the places of beauty, truth, life, and love in our own lives. Copies of Brent’s book will be available for sale and signing.
