Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim's Tale, by Ian Morgan Cron
4 Tuesdays in March: March 6, 13, 20, 27
“It's an amazing story with profound implications for the contemporary church.”
Chase Falcon, mega-church pastor, has lost his faith-and he did it right in front of the congregation at his church. Now the elders want him to take some time away: far away. So Chase crosses the Atlantic to visit his uncle, a Franciscan priest, where he encounters the teachings of Francis of Assisi and rediscovers his ancient faith. Follow Chase's spiritual journey in the footsteps of Francis, and then begin one of your own through the pilgrim's guide included in this book.
Near the end of the book, Chase says, "When I left here, I wasn't sure what a Christian looked like anymore. My idea of what it meant to follow Jesus had run out of gas….Learning about Francis helped me fall in love with Jesus again - and with the church again, too."

More About Littlefield Presbyterian Church (USA)
Littlefield Presbyterian Church (USA) grew out of a Sabbath School at a storefront on Warren Avenue in 1929. Following the appointment of a pastor, the congregation was established in 1930 with a charter membership of 95 people. Early worship services were held at nearby McDonald Elementary School. About 10 years later, the congregation moved to its present location on Littlefield Boulevard. Today, the Littlefield congregation focuses on healing, reconciliation and learning to "transcend the barriers that separate God's people." To that end, Littlefield holds a Peace Camp for local youth each year to help promote understanding and acceptance. Littlefield also offers a monthly Taizé worship service, which features prayer and music woven together in a contemplative prayer. Taizé is an ecumenical Christian monastic order founded in 1940 in France.
