WHAT and WHEN
On weekdays, 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., during Thy Kingdom Come (Thursday, 21 May to 31 May 2020) the Dean of Fredericton invites you to read and study “God Is Indestructible.” In seven “virtual” sessions, we’ll discuss two chapters per day. Ideally, join us using a device with a microphone and camera, but we can also call you by telephone or, you might just choose to read along and discuss with others in your own time and according to your own schedule.
Getting the Book
You’ll need a copy of “God is Indestructible.”
