BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP
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."
