Guest Message by Stephanie Hunt
Posted by CC on May 2, 2012
On April 29, 2012 we were pleased to welcome Stephanie Hunt to our pulpit. A regular presence in Charleston Magazine and Skirt, Stephanie Hunt is one of the Lowcountry’s favorite writers. A senior editor for the online journal “Literary Mama,” she also launched a new blog at literarycharleston.wordpress.com. Stephanie is a creative partner with various companies and nonprofits and is an active member and leader of Circular Church. “Versatility is my strong suit; curiosity my motivation,” she writes. No doubt her versatility will spark our curiosity too.
Be sure to check out one of her major causes, which she refers to in this message, Charleston Moves.
In honor of Stephanie, our book pick for this week is The Circular Church: Three Centuries of Charleston History by Joanne Calhoun. The Circular Congregational Church reflects the independent spirit of its founders. To tour the church and wander in its graveyard is to feel the presence of people who settled the colony of Charleston, amassed and lost fortunes, plotted the Revolution, framed the Constitution, formed the Union, split the Union, survived the Civil War and coped with its aftermath. With detailed research and a rare collection of vintage photographs, this book traces the history of one of Charleston’s most famous landmarks, and one of the city’s oldest congregations. Of course, we have a shared history with The Circular Church. Please remember that all purchases made from Amazon.com through these links help to support the church.
