Leslie Leyland Fields is a multi-award-winning writer, editor, and international speaker who lives on Kodiak Island, Alaska in the winter and Harvester Island in the summer, where she joins her family in a commercial salmon fishing operation. She has written 10 nonfiction books including the one we are going to be studying, “Crossing the Waters,” winner of the 2017 Christianity Today Book Award for Christian living. She also hosts the Harvester Island Wilderness Workshop, a week-long writing workshop and retreat at her remote fish camp island. She taught for many years undergraduate and graduate programs through Seattle Pacific Univ. and Univ. of Alaska. She continues to teach and do radio shows. Leslie has six children most of whom work in the salmon fishing business every summer.
Get ready for the wettest, stormiest, wildest trip through the Gospels you've ever taken! The Gospels are dramatic and incredibly wet, set in a rich maritime culture on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Yet we've missed much of this perspective—until now.
In this 6-part series, Leslie Leyland Fields, author, speaker, and seasoned Alaskan fisherwoman takes us on a journey through the life of Christ. She leads us across the waters of time and culture out onto the Sea of Galilee, through a rugged season of commercial fishing with her family in Alaska, and through the waters of the New Testament beside the ragtag fishermen disciples. Her own story and her fresh insights will challenge our understanding of Jesus and what it means to “Come, follow me.”
I want you to have the opportunity to read her book ahead of time so I will be ordering books soon and you will have time to read the book and be prepared for our study. If you are like me you will have a hard time putting the book down.
Donations for the book and materials will be $20.00.
Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text me (252-337-4966), and I will get an order in this week for those who already know they will be attending.
