On Wednesday, April 18th at 7:00 p.m., Adat Shalom Synagogue is hosting an exciting program, the proceeds of which have been designated to benefit our agency.
Author Mary Lou Quinlin will perform “The God Box,” a one-person, one-act play based on her new book The God Box: sharing my mother’s gift of faith, love and letting go.
In both book and play, Quinlin shares the remarkable discovery she made after her mother’s death: two decades worth of her mother’s handwritten notes. Quinlin always knew her mother kept a “God Box” in which she deposited her prayers and dreams for everyone she knew–and even those she didn’t–but to her amazement, Quinlin found not one, but ten boxes stuffed with hundreds of tiny petitions that spanned the last 20 years of her mother’s life. Rather than carry around the burden of her worries, her mom wrote her thoughts and hopes on whatever scrap of paper she found handy and placed them into her “God Box” for ‘release and resolution.’
The event is open to the public, and I encourage you to attend in support of JF&CS and Adat Shalom…and because the program should be excellent. Early reviews have been outstanding!
The cost for the event is $25 per person which includes a copy of the book and a champagne & dessert reception. Adat Shalom Synagogue is located at 368 Guys Run Road, Cheswick, PA 15024.
RSVPs are requested and are being taken through the JF&CS Event Calendar, or you may call Adat Shalom at 412.820.7000. Payment will be made at the door. For more information on “The God Box,” visit thegodboxproject.com.
