Ongoing groups

spirituality books

There are currently two ongoing small groups meeting at the church for discussion of topics related to spirituality. One is for women and meets weekly on Wednesday afternoons at 1:30. The other is for both men and women and meets weekly Thursday evenings at 6:00. One does not need to be a church member to join. We have had folks from other churches or with no current religious affiliation. Group size ranges from 6 – 10 participants. Everyone is welcome and we are always glad to include new members. We typically use a book as a lead-in to discussions. Participants are expected to read a chapter (15-25 pages) each week and be prepared to talk about their reactions (positive and negative) to the reading. Some of our most lively discussions have come out of sections with which someone disagreed! Each meeting begins with sharing of concerns and celebrations and prayer followed by an open-ended discussion of the chapter.

The women’s  group is currently reading Learning to Walk in the Dark by Barbara Brown Taylor. From the front flap: “With her characteristic charm and insight, Taylor is our guide through a spirituality of the nighttime, teaching us how to find God-or let God find us-even when it is dark, and giving us a way to let darkness teach us what we most need to know.”

The Thursday group is reading and discussing Convictions: How I Learned What Matters Most by Marcus J. Borg. Written on the occasion of his 70th birthday, Borg shares his “convictions” about Christianity and America, contending that they are both at their best when they focus on hope and transformation. He shares his thoughts on how American Christians can return to what matters most.

New members are welcome at any time!!  For more information about the groups, please contact Linda directly
