Love Let Go: Radical Generosity for the Real World
November 18 at 7pm
by Laura Sumner Truax and Amalya Campbell
Because of the overwhelmingly positive response to Amalya Campbell’s Oct. 27th Connections Hour talk about Love Let Go, the book club has decided to read the book for November. The book is the remarkable story of how a church community was transformed by the startling truth that money can buy happiness - when we give it away. The book probes the connections between human flourishing and generosity, and offers tools to help us reclaim our giver identities and live generously - to love and let go.
The Language of God
by Francis S. Collins, Dec. 16 at 7pm.
We'll be discussing The Language of Godby Francis S. Collins. Written by the lead scientist in the Human Genome project, The Language of God is a powerful confession of belief from one of the world’s leading scientists. Refuting the tired stereotypes of hostility between science and religion, Francis Collins challenges his readers to find a unity of knowledge that encompasses both faith and reason. Light refreshments will be served.
