This group, which is open to all who are interested, meets at 9 am each Sunday to discuss books by contemporary authors, usually covering one chapter at a time. Like author Rachel Held Evans, the group takes inspiration from the insight that the word “disciple”comes from the Latin “discere” – to learn. “We’re all,” as Evans says in Wholehearted Faith, “in process, all just part way through our studies.”
Books that the group has recently explored include Evan’s Wholehearted Faith; Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal; Bruce Epperly’s Piglet’s Process; Barbara Brown Taylor’s Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others; Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life; and Ibram X. Kendi’s How to be an Antiracist, John Dominic Crossan’s Who Killed Jesus? Exposing the Roots of Anti-Semitism and the Gospel Story of the Death of Jesus, and Joan Chittaster’s The Time is Now: A Call to Uncommon Courage
We regularly meet the first Tuesday of the month for friendship and fun October – June. We usually enjoy programs from time to time, and host the Annual Pork Roast Dinner every October.
