July 12 - Chapter 2: Faith, Hope, and Love and Chapter 3: Forgiveness
July 19 - Chapter 4: Holiness and Chapter 5: Faith in Society

Father Jay, our book study leader this summer, joined Christ Church via Memphis, TN. He is passionate about leading people into a deeper understanding of Christian faith and practice. When he’s not reading theology, you can find him at home playing in his backyard with his two daughters. He is the new Associate Priest for Faith Development.
