Book Groups

Pick up a free copy of Rob Bell’s book, How To Be Here and learn why creativity and spirituality are inextricably linked. Rob gives you the support and insight you need to silence your critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender to the outcome.

Meet up with others reading the book to share stories and ideas. Dates for upcoming book groups will be listed here as they are scheduled.
