Now is the time to start reading...

I'm excited to be able to share some summertime reading with you. With input from an online survey, I've picked 4 books that I think will provide rich conversation partners to us this year. The list includes a classic memoir by Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, a current non-fiction bestseller that raises important issues of race, class and medical ethics, as well as two books by contemporary Christian leaders whose work has caught the attention of many as they challenge some assumptions about our faith.

The details of dates and book selections are listed in the right column.

I'll post some questions for reflection here on this blog, and invite you to be in conversation with us (even if you can't join us on Wednesday nights).

But I hope you'll come if you can--we'll be meeting up in Linder Lounge (at First United Methodist Church of San Diego, 2111 Camino del Rio S, 92108) from 7-8 p.m. on Wednesdays between July 27 and August 31. All are welcome.

Come early to share in Vespers communion worship at 5:30 and a $6 meal in Linder Hall at 6 p.m.

I just read the prologue from Henrietta Lacks and I'm super excited! I always loved biology in school and the premise of the book is so intriguing! Can't wait to spend the weekend reading!
