The book for May is “Love Big Be Well: Letters to a Small-Town Church,” by Winn Collier.
Could this be us? ….. A pastor without a congregation trapped in a dead-end job meets a congregation without a pastor. The congregation is overwhelmed by the prospect of finding someone who actually wants to be a pastor, but they connect through letters, and after accepting the call, the pastor continues to write letters to his congregation on everything from fly-fishing to the Nicene Creed. The letters reveal the earthy spirituality woven into the joys and sorrows of the community, the church, and the pastor. We’ll discover what it means for a pastor and a church to do the slow work of ministry in community—anchored by a common place and buoyed by a life of faith that is meaningful, rooted, and true.
Eight copies of the book have been ordered and are available to check out in the office.
May is a very busy month, so Thirst Day will move to the FIFTH Thursday of the month — May 30.
If you’re thirsty for conversation about the Bible and topics of faith, we hope to see you at “Thirst Day” in May. (You don’t have to read the book. Just show up for great fellowship!)
See you at the parsonage (or maybe on the back deck!) on May 30 at 7:30 p.m.!
