10 am, Sunday, June 18, Hildebrand Hall
Have you noticed the theme of “stories” in worship this spring? In March, Rev. Courtney Stange-Tregear encouraged us to tell our stories. In recent weeks, we’ve heard powerful stories of New Yorkers from all walks of life. What a fitting segue into the intergenerational event your Plymouth Library Committee is planning for you this Sunday — Stories We Love.
Books we’ve read become an important part of our stories. Stories We Love is your opportunity to share with other Plymouth folks about a book that is meaningful to you. It could be a book that made you think differently about your life, your faith or your world. It could be fiction or nonfiction, from your childhood, or something you read a month ago. It could be a book that opens a small window onto who you are and what makes you tick. It doesn’t have to be your favorite book of all time, but it should be a book that you’d like to share with others because it impacted you.
At 10 am on Sunday morning, June 18, bring your chosen book or a photo of the book cover to Hildebrand Hall. Be ready to “show and tell” about your book for a minute or less in a small group. Try to describe the book so folks of all ages can understand why it’s meaningful to you. After sharing our books, we’ll end our time together with a simple art activity.
This event is for Plymouth folks of all ages, from Kindergarten through Adult. Parents and caregivers, bring younger children if you wish, or take them to child care.
Start thinking now about the book you’ll choose, and be ready to share it on June 18. Let’s get to know each other better through the stories we love!
