Is postponed until further notice.
The Book Club will be taking July and August off. Please join us on September 29th at 4 p.m. on Zoom to discuss the novel The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd.
The Book of Longings is a sweeping historical novel that starts with an interesting premise: What if Jesus had been married? The tale is told through the eyes of Jesus’ wife, Ana. This novel is filled with drama, intrigue, tension, and tender moments. The Book of Longings will amaze the reader with details about life in biblical times. This is an astonishing work of fiction!
The next meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 27th. (Time to be determined once we decide on an in-person or virtual Zoom meeting.) We will be discussing The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.
Our Monday evening study group, HAIR (Heretics, Agnostics, Infidels and Other Riffraff), meets every Monday from 7:00 – 8:15 pm. Because of the federal election on Monday, September 20, the first meeting of the fall will be on Monday September 27. We will continue to meet online, via Zoom, until further notice.
HAIR intends to be a place of inquiry and questioning, where doubts are expressed, uncertainties about our faith and its relevance to our daily lives are clarified, and the application of the teachings and principles of our Christian faith to major issues of our time are explored, and where we have interesting and stimulating discussions. In the past year we used videos of TED talks to launch discussion, and dealt with such topics as environmentalism, racism, social justice, ethics, science and religion, and healthy ageing. In the past we have also watched and discussed DVD series, and read and discussed thought-provoking books and articles, and we keep looking for stimulating new material.
These discussions are open to anyone interested, and new members are always welcome. For further information, or to get the zoom link for our next meeting, please contact David Leyton-Brown at email@example.com

Shalom Seekers is taking a break in programming until September 20th via Zoom. When we resume in the fall, new members would be warmly welcomed. We have wonderful, rich discussions about matters of faith, social justice issues, etc. through a study of books, DVDs, or on-line videos. For more information about the group, please contact Sandra Loughton.
