PASTOR'S READING CIRCLE

In the new year, I want to read with you. I have selected 12 books that comprise The Pastor’s Reading Circle. The hope is that once a month we can gather to   discuss a book together. Firstly, this is a shameless attempt to elicit your help in one of my spiritual disciplines. I know that reading is time-consuming, and I rarely make the time.But I also miss out on the deepening wisdom that reading provides. Secondly, I think there are some topics we ought to encounter together. Lastly, it will help us get to know one another.


The format is simple. Each month there is a book to read. There is a gathering on the last Sunday evening of the month to discuss the book. Initially, we will gather by Zoom. As weather and COVID numbers improve, I hope to gather in person.

The book schedule is as follows:
January: An Altar in the World, by Barbara Brown Taylor
February: Spiritual Rhythms in Community, by Keith Meyer
March: Acedia & Me, by Kathleen Norris
April: The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, I’m using the one with a preface by Avery
Dulles, SJ
May: The Liberation of Christmas, by Richard A Horsley
June: Stamped from the Beginning, Ibram X. Kendi
July: A Public Faith, Miroslav Volf
August: Missional, Monastic, Mainline, by Elaine Heath
September: Wrestling with the Prophets, by Matthew Fox
October: The God We Never Knew, by Marcus Borg
November: Rediscovering Mercy, by Anne Lamott
December: You Can Go Home Again, by Monica McGoldrick


You can come to any or all that you like. These selections are mostly from my shelf. Some of these are re-reads for me; others I haven’t even cracked yet. There’s no guarantee that you’ll like any of the books. There is a small fund available for those needing help with the books. If you are interested in The Pastor’s Reading Circle, please contact the office at 360/424-3628 or email me at pastorchristopher@mvfumc.org.
