Parish library to host religion author

The Concordia Parish Library will host a book talk featuring John Guice, author of “From Pentecostal to Episcopalian: The Confusing World Of Protestant Worship” from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 12 at the Ferriday Library.

Join us as Mr. Guice discusses the development of worship and attempts to provide answers as to why Christianity seems more divided than ever before.

This is not a seminary textbook but an excellent book which is appropriate for lay preacher preparation, (church) officer training, group study and individual reading.

The book should be of interest to all Christians regardless of worship tradition and a useful study guide appropriate for all lay persons as it helps us understand how each of our churches developed our order of worship.

As an educator, John Guice has taught Sunday school classes for more than 40 years.

Mr. Guice is also an accomplished lay preacher, having filled the pulpit of many Presbyterian churches in North Louisiana and South Arkansas.

He is in demand as a leader of officer training events in many local churches and has served his denomination at every level of church government.

His particular interests are in the fields of theology and church history.

In addition, John has served on the mission field in Haiti, having most recently gone to Haiti some six weeks after the earthquake.

On the mission field, he works with “Living Waters for the World” to install water purification systems for people who desperately need clean water.

Mark your calendar for Saturday at the Ferriday Library.

Mr. Guice will make a presentation on his new book and will be signing for those who would like a copy.

Clyde Ray Webber is the Concordia Parish clerk of courts and a friend of the Concordia Parish Library.
