Book Study Groups on Compassion

Posted on November 10, 2014 at 9:25 AM

Out of the Dinner Dialogue at Spartanburg Prebyterian, 3 Interfaith study groups will be convening soon to study and consult using the book "Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life" by Karen Armstrong. See for more on the book and the intentionality behind this effort. 

I am posting below more details for the Greenville group, which starts on December 9. (Niki Daniels will joining this group).  Please note all are invited to attend, whether you were at the Dinner Dialogue or not. The sessions will be held once every two months, for one calendar year, and participants will share a light meal at each session. Just email the contact person listed if you want to join.
