Worship. Serve. Grow.

Women’s Study Group (July 13)

The Women’s Study Group will meet again via zoom at noon on Tuesday, July 13, 2021, to discuss this marvelous book, Love is the Way:  Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times, by our own Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. Toni Holderied will be our discussion leader.

About Love is the Way

Walk the path of love with one of the warmest, most beloved spiritual leaders of our time, and learn how to put faith into action.

As the descendant of slaves and the son of a civil rights activist, Bishop Michael Curry’s life illustrates massive changes in our times. Much of the world met Bishop Curry when he delivered his sermon on the redemptive power of love at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle. Here, he expands on his message of hope in an inspirational road map for living the way of love, illuminated with moving lessons from his own life. Through the prism of his faith, ancestry, and personal journey, Love Is the Way shows us how America came this far and, more important, how to go a whole lot further.

The way of love is essential for addressing the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing the world today: poverty, racism, selfishness, deep ideological divisions, competing claims to speak for God. This book will lead readers to discover the gifts they need in order to live the way of love: deep reservoirs of hope and resilience, simple wisdom, the discipline of nonviolence, and unshakable regard for human dignity.

Looking ahead, our book for August 10 is The Pale Faced Lie, a true story by David Crow and our discussion leader will be Susan Coulter.

During our discussion on July 13, we will also choose several books for the future, so you can get a head start on some of them this summer.  Please send your suggestions to Joyce at loughlin1@mindspring.com.

If you are not already on our email list for notifications and zoom invitations, please contact Joyce Loughlin at loughlin1@mindspring.com. We hope to gather again in person sometime this fall!
