1 p.m. Second Sunday Book Group

January 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

As a recent graduate of Yale Divinity School and liturgist for a large church in NYC, Emily Scott heard church leaders grapple with how to get people to church. What, she wondered, if we took the church to the people. Can we make a place for those who never felt at home in church. “For All Who Hunger: Searching for Communion in a Shattered World” is her attempt to find an answer. She began a church where dinner, literally not symbolically, was at the heart of the worship experience in various makeship venues in NYC, finally settling in the midst of public housing. In came a few homeless, a few misfits, a few divinity students, and a few of the lonely. She counts herself among the latter. Scott gives us a very personal, moving and, perhaps, unconventional story of church and faith.
