WILMINGTON, MA – “The heart is filled with more than just the blood it pumps. It is also the source of a vast supply of stories.”
The community is invited to come hear author Stephen Amidon share some of these heart stories on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Wilmington United Methodist Church. Hosted by the United Methodist Women’s Rachel Circle, the event celebrates American Heart month.
Mr. Amidon co-authored “The Sublime Engine” with his brother, cardiologist Dr. Thomas Amidon. The book is a fascinating biography of the human heart, which “has always captured the human imagination. It is the repository of our deepest religious and artistic impulses, the organ whose steady functioning is understood, both lyrically and symbolically, as the very life force itself.” The book “explore[s] both the physical and figurative histories of the heart through science, religion, and popular culture” and most importantly “the profound sense of awe every person feels when they ponder the miracle encased within the ribs.”
Mr. Amidon’s stories are informative and entertaining. It promises to be a wonderful evening that includes a heart healthy dessert. Please join us.
Wilmington United Methodist Church is located at 87 Church Street, Wilmington, MA. Find us on the web at http://www.wilmingtonumc.net.
