Book Group is back!

With our new Zoom way of connecting while being apart, come new opportunities. One of which is to expand Book Group. Each Thursday night, beginning on April 23rd, we will discuss two chapters of this book. The first two "dangerous" people are Paul and Mary Magdalene. If you can't get this book before next Thursday, Jan can provide the chapters (come this Thursday (April 16th), between 11 and 1!)

 

We will still gather at 7pm for checking in and evening prayers. Then at 7:30, whoever wants to stay in the Zoom meeting and talk about the book will do so. You can also come in at 7:30 for book discussion only.

 

Zoom instructions - please contact Jan.


Read in January - Discuss on February 13th

Thursday Book Group News

Our February book is Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s God Has a Dream: a vision of hope for our time. We will meet from 7-8 in the evening on February 13th for discussion and exploration of what we have come to know in conversation with this writing. The book begins: “Dear Child of God, I write these words because we all experience sadness, we all come at times to despair, and we all lose hope that the suffering in our lives and in our world will ever end. I want to share with you my faith and my understanding that this suffering can be transformed and redeemed. There is no such thing as a totally hopeless case.” (And it only gets better, friends.)

Unabashedly Episcopalian: Proclaiming the Good News of the Episcopal Church

by the Right Rev. Andrew Doyle (Bishop of Texas).

 

This is a slim volume and a good read. A few copies are available at Grace. It can also be purchased through Church Publishing, if not your regular purveyor of books!

Practical, humorous and insightful book by the bishop of one of the most mission and evangelism-minded dioceses in the Episcopal Church


Episcopalians newly discovering their church home or long-time members who may have forgotten why they love the church will appreciate Unabashedly Episcopalian. Bishop Andy Doyle has mined the Baptismal Covenant and his own experiences leading the Diocese of Texas. The result is a heartfelt, smart and practical book that calls Episcopalians to wake up to the church’s unique gifts and story, and equips them to share that witness in their neighborhoods and out in the world.
