Open Minds Book Discussion 

Led by Jerry and Jane Bartow

Our group welcomes everyone to join us for any of our readings and discussions. This book study varies in attendance, and everyone is welcome to drop in whenever a book looks intriguing.

April reading choices (choose one):

  • Accidental Saints by Nadia BolzWeber
  • Fierce by Alice Connor

Accidental Saints “demonstrates what happens when ordinary people share bread and wine, struggle with Scripture together and tell one another the truth about their real lives… their faltering steps toward wholeness will ring true for believer and skeptic alike.” Fierce tells stories of the women of the Bible, beginning with the four who are listed in Jesus’ genealogy.

Meets monthly (4th Friday)

9:30 a.m.

Jesus: Understanding His Death and Resurrection

It gives a clearer understanding of the “why” behind the events that took place during the final days of Jesus on earth. It focuses on Mark, chapters 14, 15, 16. Purchase of a book is not required. Weekly lessons will be prepared and distributed.

Because of This I Rejoice—Reading Philippians During Lent
This study of Philippians explores what Paul teaches about joyfully practicing spiritual disciplines. The intent of these disciplines is to help us focus less on ourselves and more on God. This Lenten study invites us to engage in the same spiritual practices to grow closer to God and allow joy to flow through our lives.
