Thinking about your summer reading list?

The Inner and Outer Connections committee will be offering 3 “book study” evenings this coming fall/winter (dates/times TBA). Books that will be discussed:

  • The Pagan Christ: Recovering the Lost Light (2004), by Tom Harpur
  • Grounded: Finding God in the World: a Spiritual Revolution (2015) by Diana Butler Bass
  • Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks (2018), by Diana Butler Bass

Why not get a jump start on your reading, and do some spiritual exploring at the same time? Happy summer reading!

Sports

Is it possible for a 3 person team to lose 21 golf balls and win the Twenty-first Westminster Open Golf Tournament by eight strokes? The answer is a resounding “Yes”, as was so capably demonstrated by the team of Greg Blanco, Delmar Epp, and Russ Blanco. The tournament dinner was attended by 33 patrons. The event produced $2405 for Westminster.
