Book Launch: The Flames Shall Not Consume You, Thursday, February 3, 4-6pm, Atrium
Help us celebrate the release of an audiobook forty years in the making! 42 years ago Mary Ellen Ton (former FBC member) was nearly killed in a tragic fire. The Flames Shall Not Consume You is her story. The story of her journey through the fire, its aftermath, and her wrestling match with God. It is a gut-wrenching and inspirational journey. This Second Edition brings her words to life in a first-ever audiobook version of her story. Join Amy Brown and Mary Ellen’s son Jeff Ton as we tell Mary Ellen’s story and the story of bringing the audiobook to life. This book launch event will be held in the FBC Atrium on Thursday, February 3rd from 4-6pm. This is an open house – come when you want – stay as long as you want. All proceeds from the sale of the audiobook benefit the Eskenazi Health Burn Unit.
