Church News: June 1

Hoosier author coming to New Horizons

ANDERSON — Philip Gulley will be at New Horizons United Methodist Church, 611 E 53rd St., on June 22 at 6:30 p.m. for an evening of storytelling and book signing. Tickets will be $15 and are available from the church office (765) 644-0949 or on the website www.newhorizonsanderson.org. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit missions and proceeds from book sales will benefit the youth outreach.

Gulley is a Quaker pastor and beloved writer and speaker who has become the voice of small-town American life. An eclectic writer, Gulley is the author of 17 books including the acclaimed Harmony series of novels chronicling life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, Ind. and the best selling Porch Talk series of inspirational and humorous stories. Gulley's memoir, "I Love You, Miss Huddleston: And Other Inappropriate Longings of My Indiana Childhood," recounts his coming-of-age years in Danville, Ind.

In addition, Gulley and co-author James Mulholland describe their progressive worldview in their books, "If Grace Is True" and "If God Is Love," followed by Gulley's books "If the Church Were Christian" and "The Evolution of Faith" which propose a fresh direction for Christianity.

Gulley was raised in Danville where he lives today with his wife, Joan, and their sons, Spencer and Sam, in a comfortable house with a welcoming porch. Many of his characters and recollections are taken from his boyhood in this small Midwestern town.
