Parish Book Club Meeting Report

The Parish Book Club met on September 24th.

The 2 books for the next two months’ study,  are:

Advent book: John Pritchard’s:  ‘Living Faithfully’ @ £9.99,  and

Martin Gilbert’s:  ‘Churchill, the Power of Words’ @ £12.08.

It was also recommended that we read the Pope’s latest encyclical, ‘ Laudato Si ’@ £4.95 : “Praise be to you, my Lord, in the words of St Francis beautiful canticle, reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother, who opens her arms to embrace us through our sister Mother Earth who sustains and governs us.” This is highly recommended reading as we prepare prayerfully for the international conference on climate change at the end of the year.

The Lent book next year will be Rowan Williams’: ‘Meeting God in Mark’ @£7.19

An additional read of Simon Armitage: Walking Home @ £6.99 is also highly recommended.

DATE OF NEXT MEETING/CHRISTMAS PARTY 1 DECEMBER 2015, will be at 11 a.m. at the Huxham’s.  Please let Rosemary Hadland  know if there is anything you would prefer to contribute, otherwise she will let you know nearer the time what the gaps are in the draft menu.
