September 10 – October 1
Healing the Heart of Democracy
In this book, Parker J. Palmer looks with realism and hope at how to deal with our political tensions for the sake of the common good. From Will: We’re really excited to read and discuss the ideas and challenges Parker Palmer presents, and to “keep on walking and keep on talking” as Congressman John Lewis reminds us in his endorsement of the book. We recommend getting a copy of the book from the church office or on Amazon for around $15 and start reading. However, even if you don’t get a chance to buy or read the book, please join us for a fruitful discussion.
– Led by Will Slade and Sam Riccobene
Meets in the Library
Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint, by Nadia Bolz-Weber
Outrageous, rich, and remarkable, Pastrix turns spiritual memoir on its ear in this sardonically irreverent and beautifully honest page-turner. Nadia Bolz-Weber takes no prisoners as she reclaims the term “pastrix” (pronounced “pas-triks,” a term used by some Christians who refuse to recognize female pastors) in her messy, beautiful, prayer-and-profanity laden narrative about an unconventional life of faith.”
First meeting: September 10, after worship in Room 301. The initial meeting will be a 30 minute discussion to determine the format and time of the future meetings. For example, should we have periodic online discussions followed by an in-person meeting at the end of our study? The structure of the group will depend on the preference of the participants. If you can’t make it on September 10th, but are interested, please send email to Lisa.
