The Season of Lent has traditionally been a time for special dedication, devotion and study.
As in the past few years, we will offer Lenten Book Groups. This year, parishioners have the choice of two books: Made for Goodness by Demond Tutu or Zealot by Reza Aslan.
By Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu
Over the years the same questions get asked of Desmond Tutu, the archbishop, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and veteran of the moral movement that ended apartheid in South Africa: "How can you be so hopeful after witnessing so much evil?" "Why are you so sure goodness will triumph in the end?" This book is his answer. Now, more than any other time in history, our world needs this message: that we are made for goodness and it is up to us to live up to our destiny.
We recognize Archbishop Tutu from the headlines as an inspirational figure who has witnessed some of the world's most sinister moments and chosen to be an ambassador of reconciliation amid political, diplomatic, and natural disasters. Now, we get a glimpse into his personal spirituality—and a better understanding of the man behind a lifetime of good works. In this intimate and personal sharing of his heart, written with his daughter, Episcopal priest Mpho Tutu, Tutu engages his reader with touching stories from his own life, as well as grisly memories from his work in the darkest corners of the world. There, amid the darkness, he calls us to hope, to joy, and to claim the goodness that we were made for. Tutu invites us to take on the disciplines of goodness, the practices that are key to finding fulfillment, meaning, and happiness for our lives.
This book group will meet on Wednesday evenings beginning on March 12th, immediately following the 7:00 p.m. Eucharist. Neal Winward will lead this group which will meet at 7:30 p.m. in the Isom Room.
by Reza Asian
From the internationally bestselling author of No god but God comes a fascinating, provocative, and meticulously researched biography that challenges long-held assumptions about the man we know as Jesus of Nazareth.
Approaching the subject from a purely academic prospective, the author parts an important curtain that has long hidden from view the man Jesus, who is every bit as compelling, charismatic, and praiseworthy as Jesus Christ. Carefully com- paring extra-biblical historical records with the New Testament accounts. Aslan develops a convincing and coherent story of how the Christian church, and in particular Paul, reshaped Christianity’s essence, obscuring the very real man who was Jesus of Nazareth.
This book group will meet on Wednesday mornings beginning on March 12th at 9:45 a.m. immediately following the morning Eucharist. In addition, a second group will meet on Friday evenings at 7:30 p.m. at various parishioner homes. A schedule will be forthcoming.
Both books will be available at cost beginning on Sunday, March 2nd in the Parish Hall. Of course you are always free to purchase your own copy for your e-reader.
