Theology on Tap

is back with a series of year-round events at the Diocese of Joliet 

Healing; Wounded

In this presentation Drew will share some of his story from his new book, Healing of a Restless Heart. That story is one of great grace and mercy and some pain and trauma as well. By the grace of God he has continued his journey in faith one day at a time, trusting in the great mercy of Jesus Christ who forgives all of our sins and walks with us in times of trial - even when they seem not to go away. Drew will also be performing some music off his coming debut EP. Come hear the great story of all of us – seen through the lens of one man.
