From time to time, Plymouth members and friends gather to talk about books relating to our faith life. Some of you recently expressed a desire to join a Sunday morning book discussion group. In response, Plymouth Library will sponsor a book discussion event in the New Year. For this event, we chose to read Take This Bread, a memoir by former war correspondent Sara Miles.
Take This Bread is a conversion story like none you may have ever read. With frankness and humor, Miles tells the story of her transformation from an uninterested nonbeliever to a passionate Christian who finds her calling in service to the urban poor and outcast.
Many threads run through this book. Among them are hunger and food in both literal and spiritual senses, welcoming the stranger and the challenges and rewards of living a faith-filled life with a spirit of courage and adventure.
We invite you to join in the discussion of Take This Bread 10 am, February 8, in the Plymouth Library. We chose this book without a particular agenda in mind. This event simply offers an opportunity to gather for an hour and reflect together on a book with faith-related themes that we hope will resonate with many of you and provoke interesting discussion.
You may purchase a copy of Take This Bread ($14) at the church office, pick it up at a bookseller or find it at the library. Keep checking the Herald and website for date and time and look forward to a fruitful time of sharing about this remarkable book! –Ingrid Holmlund, Library CommitteeSubscribe
