St. Michael Lutheran Church invites the public to attend a book signing event with the church’s former pastor, Marjorie Weiss, on Monday, Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. at the church, located at 1915 Birkdale Drive in Wellington.
Weiss’s recently published memoir, Praying on Empty: A Female Pastor’s Story, a finalist in the International Book Awards in Best New Nonfiction, delves into the unsettling reality that she faced. How does a pastor continue to serve in public ministry when faith has vanished? This is the central question of her book.
As one of the early ordained women in the Lutheran Church, she traces the roots of her calling as a young woman and the light and dark realities of her 35 years in parish ministry in order to try to see if she can find God again. Or would God find her? Her writing is witty, at times wrenching, and very honest.
The book is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble online in print version as an e-book. Weiss will have copies available to purchase at the book signing, which will also include her reading selections from the book. Refreshments will be served.
