Two years ago Beth and I met Shauna Niequist when she spoke at CIL. I had been a long-time admirer of her father Bill Hybels, and Beth had really been touched by Shauna’s first book Cold Tangerines. We so enjoyed getting to know Shauna through dinner and lunch, and I found her to be very insightful on the church in America. It’s a real privilege to have her return to CIL on Thursday night (November 18th) for the presentation of her newest book Bittersweet.
Also one of my favorite local musicians, Erika Chambers, will be peforming. She does great Americana / Bluegrass music that asserts her own style and heart. She’s a great young lady, you’ll enjoy her immensely.
Here is more details for tomorrow night:
Share an evening with Shauna Niequist and the women of CIL on Thursday, November 18th: we’ll eat, laugh, talk about change, grace, and all the ways God mends our hearts. Shauna will share stories from her new book, Bittersweet, as we explore one of God’s greatest gifts to us – change.
We’ll start at 6:00 p.m. with A Taste of Fall Soup Tasting : bring your favorite fall soup or dessert to share. Shauna is warm, funny, and open about what she’s discovering about life, love, and God’s graciousness. Her book, Bittersweet, is available for purchase at The Communication Center for $10.
