Join Us as We Begin a New Course in the Thursday Night Bible Study
The Thursday Night Bible Study Group will be starting a new course on St. Augustine’s Confessions on September 12, 2019. According to Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Augustine in the Confessions elevated doubt, questioning and self-consciousness to a spiritual state. St. Augustine’s Confessions is widely available for free on e-readers, on Amazon, and through the library. We will be meeting every other Thursday night from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm in Saint Luke’s library (Room 30 on Sept. 12) and Tuck hopes to join us most nights.
Contact Frank Morgan with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org/703-360-0807). We hope you can join us on alternate Thursdays at 7:30 pm in St. Luke's Library to begin discussing the book. Please check the Calendar for dates.
NEXT MEETING Sept. 24, 2019 at 7 pm in the Library
Summer reading: our next book!
“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” —Reese Witherspoon
No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine.
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. This is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes that the only way to survive is to open your heart.
