The Good Faith Book Club meets this Saturday in Room 2 on the ground floor of our community centre at 2pm. All are welcome to take part in or just listen to the discussion over a free cuppa in a relaxed atmosphere. We will be discussing 'Exiles' by Michael Frost. He defines exiles as Christians who find themselves caught in that dangerous wilderness between contemporary Western culture and an old-fashioned church culture of respectability and conservatism. He presents a plea for such Christians to embrace a dynamic, life-affirming, robust Christian faith that can be lived confidently in a world that no longer values such faith. Well that's what the book cover says. What will our readers say? You are welcome to come and find out.
