Book Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30-9 pm. We meet to share a potluck meal, fellowship, and book discussion. A different parishioner hosts the gathering each time and all are welcome to attend. Contact the parish office for details on location.
In December we bring poetry to share with other group members. At the January meeting we select the books to be read during the rest of the year and vote on our favorites following the meeting. All are welcome to attend the meeting and propose a book that they have read, that is readily available for purchase and/or at the library, and that they think will make for a good group discussion.
Currently on hiatus.
In the past, the series has included the Rev. Marcus Borg and the Rt. Rev. John Spong (Diocese of Newark).
The Diocesan Exodus Big Read
Last year Episcopalians in the Diocese of Southern Ohio joined Bishop Tom Breidenthal in studying the Book of Exodus and reflecting on what it has to teach us about God’s vision for us today. This year we will begin reading the Book of Luke and the Book of Acts together, starting on December 3, 2018 and continuing through Pentecost in 2019. You can go online to find all of the resources at The DSO Big Read.
The liturgical reading selectors also practice spiritual discipline and biblical exploration while identifying and reflecting on poetry or and prose that expand our view of the scriptural readings.
Bible Study meets at 9:15 AM in Hobson Hall between the 8:30 and 10:30 services. All are welcome to attend; you do not need to have read the text under discussion first. At the beginning of Advent we will begin discussion of the Book of Luke.
As a matter of spiritual discipline and biblical exploration, collect writers read, reflect and write the opening collect once or twice a quarter based on the weekly scriptural texts.
