Bless this Mess: Book talk + Playdate and Potluck, at All Souls, Berkeley

Saturday, October 5, 2019, 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm

The Rev. Molly Baskette is the senior pastor at First Congregational Church in Berkeley, and she is also the co-author of a brand new book — Bless this Mess: A modern Guide to Faith and Parenting in a Chaotic World. In it, Molly tackles the thorny questions of parenting we all wrestle with at one time or another, from the perspective of a progressive Christian. Alongside this perspective, her co-author Dr. Ellen O’Donnell offers her wisdom as a child psychologist, helping us to understand more of what is going on developmentally at these different stages, and what might actually be helpful to our children.

Join us for a special free event around this book! We’ll have childcare on the playground from 4ppm to 5:15, while the parents have time to hear from Molly and crack open this rich topic together. Her book will also be available to purchase if you don’t yet have it. Then we’ll enjoy a laid-back potluck together.

The Rev. Liz Tichenor
