Jane Knuth's talk at Creighton on YouTube.
A Creighton Online Reading Group
Join in the experience we shared on Creighton's campus for the six weeks of Lent by reading this simple, powerful book about a woman's journey to open her heart to learn from unlikely saints in a thrift store.
We enlisted 25 readers from around the world to share the graces they received while reading the book, week by week. Others, including Jane Knuth, added their own comments to the blog.
Jane Knuth spoke at Creighton the week before Lent began. Watch that talk here.
So, read along with us - enjoying the book, Jane's talk and the sharing - for a fresh and rewarding experience.
Order your copy of the book now from your local bookstore or Loyola Press:
Jane Knuth is a wife, mother, math teacher, and author of this moving book about her soul-stirring experiences at the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Join us for this personal encounter with people from whom Jane learned to view society's poor, not as problems to be solved, but to see them, one at a time, as saints who can lead us straight to the heart of Christ.
Click on the "See Inside" button on the Loyola Press site to get a preview of Jane's story.
View a video of Jane showing us the store where she volunteers.
