Tuesdays in August

A new book discussion group is starting up on Tuesdays evenings in August. The book is called “Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others” by Barbara Brown Taylor. This book is a small window on a large subject. This is the story of a Christian minister who lost her way in the church and found a new home in the classroom, where the course she taught most often was not Introduction to the New Testament but Religions of the world. As soon as she recovered from the shock of meeting God in so many new hats, she fell for every religion she taught.  I loved this book. Barbara Brown Taylor is a great writer, with real theological and spiritual depth. The book just came out this year and is published by HarperOne. It can be purchased on Amazon, Cokesbury, or probably from local book shores. Let me know if you want to be a part of this discussion group.  Maybe you have a friend that you would like to invite to join you for this group. This is a great way to introduce someone to your church. Maybe you have a friend who is not sure about the church because it often seems like an exclusive club. This would be a great study to invite them to take part in. Blessings, Steve
