June Book Club Meeting is scheduled for Sunday June 5th.
We hope to be able to gather for an in-person meeting while still facilitating virtual attendance for those unable to physically join us.
Our theme will be books about Pilgrims and Pilgrimages. If you are not sure about finding a title on the topic, have a look at this list of titles from the Vancouver Public Library:
Next Book Club Meeting is on May 1st, and our topic will be books about Hermits, those holy people who live in solitude in the wilderness or who travel from place to place unattached to specific locations, but who live lives deeply connected to God.
If you are struggling to find a title of interest, have a look at this selection of titles from the Vancouver Public Library:
We are looking at the possibility of holding upcoming sessions in person at St. Paul's, but with an online option as well for those unable to meet in person. Stay tuned for more information.
April Book Club session is held on April 3rd at 1:00 on Zoom!
Our focus will be books about the history of Easter, with a particular focus on how Easter has been observed and celebrated in the Church over the centuries. With Easter itself just two weeks away, this will be very timely! I am so looking forward to seeing you all and hearing about what you've been reading!
Last Sunday March 13, 2022 we continued our discussion about "Books Which Didn't Make the Cut". We had a great time exploring titles about the writings of the Gnostics and other groups whose scriptures did not make it into the Bible. A full report is forthcoming, but I wanted to touch base about our next meeting, scheduled for Sunday April 3rd.
Although we will still be in the midst of the season of Lent, we are going to look ahead to Easter, and our focus will be on books about the history of Easter as it is celebrated in the Church. To help get you started, here are some titles available from the Vancouver Public Library:
Note that this VPL catalogue search casts the net rather widely and there are titles in the list which don't really talk about the history of Easter. Hint: I would steer clear of titles about the Easter Islands, the Easter Uprising in Ireland, or Easter food and decorations ... all worthy subjects in their own right to be sure, but not relevant for our April 3rd meeting.
