Our gatherings include discussion time, as well as a time to share, encourage and pray for each other. You can read in advance, listen to the audio, or just show up on Mondays and jump in. Authors range from C.S. Lewis and Graham Greene to Flannery O’Connor and Henri Nouwen. We’ll lead off this fall with a devilishly-good classic: The Screwtape Letters (C.S. Lewis).

I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening) Book Study, led by Susan Coley

In this study of their new book, I THINK YOU’RE WRONG (BUT I’M LISTENING): A GUIDE TO GRACE-FILLED POLITICAL CONVERSATIONS, women with diverse political perspectives are invited to explore how to have calm, grace-filled conversations with one another and others – by putting relationship before policy and understanding before argument.
