Summer Book Group, Week 6

Our Summer Book Group is now into our second month, with our second book!

Join us on Zoom for an hour of discussion and fellowship. We’ve got two more selections lined up, with Tuesday evening Zooms from now through Aug. 25. See the curriculum below. There is no reading assignment for the first Tuesday of the month. Feel free to drop in as many nights as you like, but you do need to register to receive the URL or call-in information.

The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog, by Adam Gidwitz
Led by Jaime Staehle
July 7, 14, 21 & 28
The Inquisitor’s Tale is a young adult novel, an exciting and hilarious adventure told in the style of the Canterbury Tales. We will follow Jeanne, Jacob and William as they traverse medieval France on a quest that will have them asking “Who is God?” and “Why is this dragon farting?”

The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For and Believe, by Richard Rohr
Led by Morgan Valencia King
Aug. 4, 11, 18 & 25
I should admit up front that I haven’t yet read this book. But look at that title! It’s quite literally promising us the (theological) world. I don’t see any way that one book about Jesus could offer that much. But if there’s even a small chance this book can help us connect with God in a new way this summer, I think it’s more than worth it.
