Pastor’s Reading Group: January 31st

Come join the discussion on Sunday, January 31st at 5:00pm.  We will discuss the book Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death by James Runcie as we share a covered dish dinner.

shadow_of_deathSidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death is a collection of stories of a mystery-solving vicar serving a parish near Cambridge in 1953.  Written by the son of an Archbishop of Canterbury, the descriptions of parish life ring true, and each mystery also is something of a sermon on an ethical matter.  The mysteries are also just plain good stories.

The Pastor’s Reading Group meets every other month to discuss a book.  Most of the time we read books that address the intersection of theology, culture, society, and faith.  Past discussions have included books by authors such as Nadia Bolz-Webber, Sara Miles, and Bruce Reyes-Chow.

Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death is the first book of what will eventually be a six part series.  The book has also been made into the TV series Grantchester which is broadcast on PBS.  (The TV series follows the book but takes some departures.  The TV series highlights the wounds of Mr. Chambers’ service in WWII.)

Come read and converse on Sunday, January 31st at 5:00pm.  Parents, please note that the time (5:00 to 6:15pm) overlaps with our Children’s Choir.
