My name is Jocelyn Schlegel. Today I will be joining you to share the children’s book I wrote and talk about some of the inspiration behind writing it. Some of you may know my dad, Chuck, who visits and serves here at All Saints.
I grew up in Sunbury and am a lifetime member of St. Matthews Episcopal Church. I graduated from Shikellamy High School in 2011. I then went to Kutztown University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and minors in Professional Writing, Public Relations, and Women’s and Gender Studies. I wrote We Are One Under The Sun when I graduated college in 2015 and it was published in 2018.
The message of my book is to learn to celebrate each other’s differences and to essentially “Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself”. This message feels relevant now more than ever. Thank you so much for allowing me to join you today.
