New for 2010! We are forming a book club to meet Wednesday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
We will explore a range of authors and genres, including fiction & non-fiction. Some of you may have already read some of our selections. We sought to select a few obscure titles that you may have never thought to read. We have included a couple of familiar titles as well. We will read voices from the margins and some dominate voices that challenge the world we live in.
We are excited to offer this space for us all to journey together and explore the divine nature of all of humanity. Below is a list of the twelve titles we shall be reading and the months in which we will be reading them
"Wise Blood" by Flannery O'Connor
"The Sabbath" by Abraham Joshua Herschel
"The Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver
"The Shack" by William P. Young
"Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal" by Christopher Moore
"The Seven Story Mountain" by Thomas Merton
"The White Bone" by Barbara Gowdy
"The Cloister Walk" by Kathleen Norris
