The Faith, Hope and Coffee Group will be reading God: Stories edited by C. Michael Curtis. It can be purchased on Amazon.
The book is a collection of stories, by well-known authors, “… about lives intertwined with religion, with the church, with clergy gone awry, and with clergy speaking to the heart…it speaks to the variety and richness of lives touched by the spirit.”
We will meet via zoom at 4 pm every Thursday starting on Thursday, September 9. For our first meeting we will discuss the Introduction and the first two stories: Exodus and Design. We would love to welcome newcomers! Please join us!
Beginning in November, we will meet hybrid – in person in Fellowship Hall or online via zoom
