Participants will have an opportunity to gather halfway through and at the end of the challenge to process and discuss their understanding and insights.  The challenge will begin July 1 and times and locations for discussion groups will be announced at that time.  You can purchase the book through Amazon or you can contact Jane Wilson, janewilson@burkeumc.org.
