Every Step A Prayer

January 27, 2017

I am excited to share a special event coming to Pass-a-Grille Beach Community Church, UCC in February.

Dr. Thomas Hawkins, an ordained Methodist minister and author of over 18 books, editor and contributor to

the Upper Room daily devotion, will be leading a day retreat Feb. 17 - 18 (*see bio below). His

presentation will be based on meditation and prayer, specifically using his most recent book,

“Every Step a Prayer”. If you’re one of those who especially likes to make your daily walk a time

of prayer, you’ll love this event.

I was first introduced to Dr. Hawkins during my Doctoral Studies through McCormick Seminary in Chicago. His calm and inviting spirit, along with his applied knowledge of multiple approaches to prayer, opened the door for great growth in my spiritual life. I am certain he will

do the same for all who attend.

The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 and 9 a.m to 3p.m. on Feb. 18. If Friday evening does not fit your schedule, you may still join us for the Saturday part of this event. There is a registration fee of $20 that covers light refreshments and lunch on Saturday. His book, “Every Step a Prayer” will be available at the church for registrants.

This event is OPEN to the Public!!

If you are interested in making the most of your daily walk, or opening up to alternative ways to pray (including the use of our beautiful church labyrinth), I hope you will attend. You can register by calling the church office at 727-366-5508 or clicking HERE.
