Book Discussion for Women: An Invisible Thread

MPLS - Wednesdays, Oct 11 - Nov 1, 9-10am, Room 392

An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting with Destiny by Laura Schroff. One rainy afternoon, busy sales executive Laura Schroff was approached by a young panhandler asking for money because he was hungry. At first, she ignored him and kept walking. Suddenly, however, she stopped, then turned back. He had said he was hungry. And so she took him to lunch at McDonald’s—a lunch that led to a remarkable friendship that has spanned more than 30 years and changed both their lives in ways they never could have imagined. This heartwarming story of how two people brought grace and hope into each other’s lives offers all of us a measure of that same grace and hope. Carol Throntveit facilitates.  Cost: $15
