St. Brigid Hosts Allen Hunt For Lenten Program

Published March 19, 2009

During the four-night series, entitled “Four Conversations Every Family Should Have,” attendees will have the opportunity to rediscover the treasures of the faith. Hunt will explore such questions as, “Is our Eucharist more than just bread and wine?,” “How do we discover our destiny?,” “Why are we part of the biggest family ever?” and “Is the Church really relevant?”

An engaging speaker, Hunt is a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, and the Atlanta-based “Allen Hunt Show” focuses not on what’s right and left but rather on what’s right and wrong.

Hunt served as senior minister of Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church, Alpharetta, with a congregation of more than 15,000. Prior to entering the ministry, he worked in business and wandered away from God’s plan for his life. One day, while entering a Wall Street high-rise, Hunt stepped over a homeless man huddled in a subway grate for warmth. At that pivotal moment, God taught him that it was time to leave behind his own plans and embrace God’s plans for his life—a life of serving others and following Jesus.

In 2007 he stepped down as minister, and on January 6, 2008, on the Feast of the Epiphany, he entered the Catholic Church.

The event is free. Babysitting will be available each evening with donations going to help support the parish’s LifeTeen mission trip.
