We are honored to welcome back to Gables UCC, the Rev. Dr. Donna Schaper.
Join Rev. Schaper on Wednesday, April 18, for a discussion on The Time Famine and how we can turn our lives into time (and space) feasts! Rev. Schaper will refer to two of her books; 1.Teaching My Daughter to Mulch— the art of time and timing.
Her newest yet to be released book: Never Enough Time. Which strives to answer the questions: How come we’re all so busy? Are there factors within our control about our own time? Or are we content to be out of control?
Rev. Dr. Donna Schaper is currently Senior Minister of the historic Judson Memorial Church in New York City and former Senior Minister at Gables UCC (2000-2005) Dr. Schaper describes the church as “a gathering place for people who seek spiritual nurture to build public capacity for social change.” Among her current projects at Judson are developing a bail-out theater and “underground economy” while also building a public ministry training program for future church leaders. The church is also the home of the New Sanctuary Movement of New York City and of Occupy Faith and is initiating a new offensive to retain access to abortion rights. Rev. Schaper has been senior minister at Judson since 2005.
Dr. Schaper is the author of many books, most recently Grace At Table: Small Spiritual Solutions To Large Material Problems. Her best seller is Sabbath Keeping. Other popular selections among her 31 books include When A Parent Dies and The Art Of Spiritual Rock Gardening and Grass Roots Gardening: Rituals To Sustain Activists.
