Join the NEW Church Book Club – all are welcome!

Do you love to read and enjoy discussing books with others? So often we understand a character or a storyline from a different perspective when we listen to others, or even when we try to explain our own perspective. We may even find that we often appreciate how a piece of literature fits with our own life.

So, I’d like to invite you (and your friends and family) to join me for book discussions. To give this idea a simple start I have selected 4 books and 4 Saturdays for the upcoming year. You may plan to join us for all of them or for 1 or 2, whatever works for you and whatever interests you! These are not new books and can easily be found as you would other reads – library, Amazon, Kindle – audio, paper or tablet.

If you have any questions reach out to Laura Haas or call the church office. No sign ups required.

So here is the plan:

Saturday November 4, 1:00 – 2:30pm, church parlor

Sensible Shoes by Sharon Garlough Brown

Sharon Garlough Brown tells the moving story of four strangers as they embark together on a journey of spiritual formation:

Hannah, a pastor who doesn’t realize how exhausted she is.

Meg, a widow and recent empty-nester who is haunted by her past.

Mara, a woman who has experienced a lifetime of rejection and is now trying to navigate a difficult marriage.                                                                                                

Charissa, a hard-working graduate student who wants to get things right.

You’re invited to join these four women as they reluctantly arrive at a retreat center and find themselves drawn out of their separate stories of isolation and struggle and into a collective journey of spiritual practice, mutual support and personal revelation.

Along the way, readers will be taken into a new understanding of key spiritual practices and find tangible support for the deeper life with God.
