David Copperfield with Dr. Henery
February 17, 24, March 3, 10
“Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life … these pages must show.” And so begins one of Charles Dickens’ most read and beloved novels—David Copperfield. Dr. Henery will use this novel for the first four Sundays in Lent and focus on a theme of repentance and forgiveness plus an extended parable being retold of the Prodigal Son. Thanks to the Rose Monkemeyer Education Fund, books have been purchased and are available at no cost in the office or during fellowship time in Dodds Hall after worship.
