2018-19 Book Club

Starting in September, we will resume St. Mark’s monthly book club. Here are some key things:

*All members of St. Mark are welcome and encouraged to invite guests. You can attend as many or as few meetings as you wish.

*Meetings will be from 6:30-8:30pm on the FOURTH Thursday of the month and start with a potluck. You can join us for just the book discussion portion of the meeting that begins roughly at 7:15pm. We generally meet in the small dining room off the kitchen.

*There will be signups for the potluck portion. You are always welcome to drop in without a dish. You are also not required to read the book. You can come just for the Christian fellowship.

September 27

Carol Wall’s “Mister Owita’s Guide to Gardening: How I Learned the Unexpected Joy of a Green Thumb and an Open Heart” This true story of an unlikely friendship between a Kenyan gardener and a high school teacher requires a box of Kleenex.

Sue will have books to borrow beginning in early August. Keep an eye on the bulletin and FYI emails for exact date. The title is also readily available to borrow from the library as an ebook or to purchase.

October 25th:

Sarah Baughman’s “A Flame in the Dark.” Read a delightful fictional account of Luther’s impact on average Wittenberg folks.

Sue will NOT have books to borrow. The title can be ordered through Sue or online.

 

November 29th:

C.S. Lewis’ “The Horse and His Boy” This classic children’s fantasy novel is part of the Narnia series but can stand alone and serves as a wonderful Christian allegory.  (Bonus: Pastor Mark uses Narnia quotes in his sermons. Now you can see what all the hubbub is about!)

Sue will have books to borrow. The title is also readily available to borrow as an ebook or to purchase.

 

 

December

No meeting so we can focus on our Savior’s birth.

 

January 31:

Tara Westover’s “Educated: A Memoir” This fascinating autobiography details a self-taught girl who went on to earn a doctorate from Cambridge.

Sue will have books to borrow. The title is also readily available to borrow as an ebook or to purchase.

Future meeting dates are February 28th, March 28th, April 25th, and May 30th. Titles are yet to be determined. Watch the church website, bulletin, and newsletter for details.
