This year, beginning in October, the every other week Peace Library Book Discussion will give trial to a new format in order to help more people become involved in our times together. Rather than discussing one book every other month, we are going to start with one book and break it down into smaller, chapter sections that will be discussed every other week during the Education Hour. It is our hope that given less to read at a time will allow more folks to participate in a discussion that is more focused. You do not need to be present at each session though it would be most helpful for everyone involved if you are able to keep up with the reading for the day's assigned chapters.
Sandy Legg and I will be facilitating a discussion of the book, The Faith Club, written by Ranya Idlibi, Suzanne Oliver and Priscilla Warner. We will meet in the Peace Library.
"A groundbreaking book about Americans searching for faith and mutual respect, The Faith Club weaves the story of three women, their three religions, and their urgent quest to understand one another.
"When an American Muslim woman befriends two other mothers, one Jewish and one Christian, they decide to educate their children about their respective religions. None of them guessed their regular meetings would provide life-changing answers and form bonds that would forever alter their struggles with prejudice, fear, and anger. Personal, powerful, and compelling, The Faith Club forces readers to face the tough questions about their own religions.
"Pioneering, timely, deeply thoughtful, and full of hope, The Faith Club’s caring message will resonate with people of all faiths." (overview from book)
This book, is available at Amazon or Barnes and Noble, costing about $13.00 in paperback format. Half-Price Bookstore may also have some on hand. Again, we will divide it into smaller chapter sections to be discussed every other week during the education hour over a set period of time. A schedule will be available in September. Possessing your own copy will be useful and is encouraged. Talk with me about questions or difficulties you encounter. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to spirited discussion and illuminating insights as we share these women's personal experiences.
