Does God still speak to us through sacred Scripture? Is the Bible really relevant? Award-winning author, Veronica Mary Rolf, will discuss her new book that traces the complete arc of our life’s journey through the drama of biblical stories. She will also suggest contemplative ways in which we may enter more deeply into the narratives, discover their personal relevance, and allow the experience to transform our lives.
