Lent Small Group Study

Beginning February 20 and February 22

How can we find better language than forced positivity to express our hopes and our anxieties? Have a Beautiful, Terrible Day! is a devotional for the rest of us—which is to say, the people who don’t have magical lives that always work out for the best. Kate encourages us to develop our capacity to feel the breadth of our experiences and look for ways we can expand our capacity for courage, love, and honesty—while discovering divine moments with God. Contact Dr. Uiyeon Kim at or 704-295-4840 with any questions. 

Watch Dr. Howell’s conversation with Kate Bowler.
