“The Shared Shelf” is a book club for the busy woman. Join a group of women in reading and discussing a non-fiction (or occasionally fiction) book, written by a woman, and explore how another woman’s words – written and spoken – can challenge and/or change us in our perspectives about ourselves and God. We’re not necessarily endorsing authors or books; we’re endorsing Jesus as a filter for both – and how they might help us meet Jesus in a different way.
Register for regular email updates; attend when you can. NO COST; but you’re responsible for getting your own copy of each book in the format you prefer (borrowed, bought, hard cover, paperback, digital).
3rd Wednesday each month, 7:00 pm | Join us for Wednesday Family Supper beforehand (North Atrium)!
Discussion Date: Wednesday, January 15, 2020
Almost Everything: Notes on Hope by Anne Lamott
“I am stockpiling antibiotics for the Apocalypse, even as I await the blossoming of paperwhites on the windowsill in the kitchen,” Anne Lamott admits at the beginning of Almost Everything. Despair and uncertainty surround us: in the news, in our families, and in ourselves. But even when life is at its bleakest–when we are, as she puts it, “doomed, stunned, exhausted, and over-caffeinated”–the seeds of rejuvenation are at hand.
