Recess: Rediscovering Play and Purpose Book Launch

Cass Community Publishing House (CCPH) will celebrate the release of its second publication: “Recess: Rediscovering Play and Purpose.” The author, Laurie Haller is the co-senior pastor of First United Methodist Church in Birmingham. “Recess: Rediscovering Play and Purpose” reflects on Haller’s thirty-two year journey in the church community. While giving eighty percent of her time to her church, she became overworked and unsure of her calling. Haller was granted a three-month leave from her ministerial responsibilities in order to look for meaning in her work. A portion of book sales benefit Cass Community Social Service.
