You are invited to come along to our next Good Faith Book Club, which is tomorrow, Saturday November 28th at 2pm. Because of the Cards for Good Causes shop in the church and a concert rehearsal there too, we are meeting on the ground floor of our adjoining community centre in room 2. You are welcome to come along on your own or with a friend even if you haven't read the book. This time, it is Redeeming The Past by Father Michael Lapsley, who lost both hands and an eye from a letter bomb for campaigning against South Africa's former apartheid regime. The author describes the book as "My journey from freedom fighter to healer" and it explains how he has become a counsellor for trauma victims worldwide.
The kettle will be on from about 1.45pm and we have relaxed, convivial discussions before choosing our next book. Expect a warm, friendly welcome on a cold day.
