Are you living the abundant life?
An abundant life—not an abundance life. There’s a significant difference between the two.
Many of us middle-class North Americans are living the abundance life. In his new book, Quaker author J. Brent Bill
posits that an abundant life is about more than material abundance and is found in four essential ideals.These ideals can guide us into the life we desire if we learn to incorporate them into our daily lives. Those four ideals are beauty, truth, life, and love.
Join us for a morning with Brent as he preaches in both services at 9 am and 11 am. Come back in the
afternoon at 3 pm as he will read from his book and will invite us to look at the places of beauty, truth, life,
and love in our own lives.
J. Brent Bill, a member of Spirituality & Practice’s “Living Spiritual Teachers Project,”
