“The Shack”

The book we are currently reading is “The Shack” written by William P. Young. It is a book of fiction written in 2007 and it wrestles with the question “Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?” And as much as the world was filled with pain in 2007, sometimes I believe we in 2013 are even more filled with pain and questions.

Even if you have read this book years ago, we invite you to read it again and join us for discussion on Saturday, November 9th at 10AM in the parlor. I read it in 2008, but never wrestled with my thoughts or reflections nor did I discuss it much with anyone. For some this book may be hard to read through because of the tragic murder of a young girl, but persevere because you may just be transformed. This will give you the opportunity to read the book again and discuss it with other sisters and brothers in Christ. Coffee, juice, fruit and a baked good will be provided.

YOU ARE WELCOME! Pastor Lorraine
