Summer Reading


There are major life events--- like marriage, the birth of a child, job loss, the loss of a loved one or a worldwide pandemic---that force change. But the books we read, invite change. Stories take us places we’ve never been, introduce us to people we’ll never meet and expose us to ideas that can shift our perspective.


Stories are soul food, as one author puts it. And they can help us in soul care.


The best stories point us to The Story, connecting us to God and to one another.


For the rest of this summer, we will be writing about books that have influenced us, and we would love for you to share, in the comments below or on our Facebook page, what you are currently reading and/or those books that have had the greatest impact on you.



We should always choose our books as God chooses our friends, just a bit beyond us, so that we have to do our level best to keep up with them. – Oswald Chambers


Happy reading!
