Here are the book selections for May and June.
May’s selection is The Longest Trip Home: A Memoir by John Grogan
You may remember this author’s Marley and Me? Well, before there was Marley, there was a gleefully mischievous boy navigating his way through the seismic social upheaval of the 1960s. On the one side were his loving but comically traditional parents, whose expectations were clear. On the other were his neighborhood pals and all the misdeeds that followed. The more young John tried to straddle these two worlds, the more spectacularly, and hilariously, he failed. Told with Grogan’s trademark humor and affection, The Longest Trip Home is the story of one son’s journey into adulthood to claim his place in the world. It is a story of faith and reconciliation, breaking away and finding the way home again, and learning in the end that a family’s love will triumph over its differences.
June’s selection is The Rent Collector by Camron Wright
Survival for Ki Lim and Sang Ly is a daily battle at Stung Meanchey, the largest municipal waste dump in all of Cambodia. They make their living scavenging recyclables from the trash. Life would be hard enough without the worry for their chronically ill child, Nisay, and the added expense of medicines that are not working. Just when things seem worst, Sang Ly learns a secret about the bad-tempered rent collector who comes demanding money–a secret that sets in motion a tide that will change the life of everyone it sweeps past.
The Rent Collector is a story of hope, of one woman’s journey to save her son and another woman’s chance at redemption.
Navigating Our Digital World
Faithfully tackling one of the biggest parenting issues of our time – how do parents navigate teaching digital awareness to children who are digital natives? Intended For: Caregivers of children ages 10 – 18 Leader: Kelly Falck & Faith Formation Team
New to faith? Curious about God? Coming back to church after some time away? Come and have conversations, explore faith, and be a part of a community!
Everything has a starting point—life, relationships, education, career. But sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point as well. By the time we’re adults, most of us have made up our minds about faith. But the faith we form or inherit when we’re young doesn’t always stand up to the pressures of life.
What if it were possible to explore faith freely and ask the questions we all have. What if it were possible to wipe the slate clean and work together to find a new starting point for faith?
STARTING POINT is an 8-week small group where you can discuss the questions or concerns you have about faith. Join us any Sunday. Class will be held in the Library from 9:45 – 10:45 am.
Wednesdays at 6:30 pm
March 13 – June 12
Most people say that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Facilitated by Barbara Caboot (Note: Class will be offered as part of our new “Wednesday CONNECT” series, but will continue after that ends until June.)
