Norfield Open Door Book Club

Wednesday, April 19 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

love is the way book cover

Please join us for Norfield Church's next Open Door Book Club on Wednesday, April 19th, at 7:30 pm in the Banks Room.

We had a lively meeting of our March book group, talking about Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus.

Our book selection for our upcoming April book group is Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times by Bishop Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. Here is a brief description of the book:

"As the descendant of slaves and the son of a civil rights activist, Bishop Michael Curry's life illustrates massive changes in our times. Much of the world met Bishop Curry when he delivered his sermon on the redemptive power of love at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle. Here, he expands on his message of hope in an inspirational road map for living the way of love, illuminated with moving lessons from his own life. Through the prism of his faith, ancestry, and personal journey, Love Is the Way shows us how America came this far and, more important, how to go a whole lot further.

"The way of love is essential for addressing the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing the world today: poverty, racism, selfishness, deep ideological divisions, competing claims to speak for God. This book will lead readers to discover the gifts they need in order to live the way of love: deep reservoirs of hope and resilience, simple wisdom, the discipline of nonviolence, and unshakable regard for human dignity."

If you haven't been to our Book Club before, we're excited to have you. Please contact Tracy and she'll add you to the list. You can reach her at tracypen@sbcglobal.net or phone (203) 536-9321.

Now that we’re able to gather in person again, we hope to see more of you and as always, you're welcome to bring a friend. Of course, a Zoom link will be available for those who wish to attend remotely — we welcome you! Hope to see you there!
