Online Book Group
Want to have some conversation on topics of faith and life, but on your own schedule and from your own home? Contact Pastor Rebecca if you'd like to participate in an online book group in 2017.
In fall 2015, we read Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. The book is a letter from Coates to his teenage son, on being an African-American man in this time. As ELCA members, we have been called by our presiding bishop to confront the racist systems on which our country is founded. This “visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive” book taught us more about those systems. Called “a book that every American should read,” the book challenged us to learn more of our hurting and hurtful world, as we anticipated and celebrated the coming of Christ into this world once again, at Christmas.
