Sunday Morning Group
June 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Lauren’s Sunday morning group will begin reading “Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship ” by Gregory Boyle beginning on June 13th and ending five weeks later. You can join us in person or online via zoom. We are an eclectic and authentic bunch of all sorts of people and we think that’s one of the reasons why our time together is so good. We don’t shy away from tough conversations or big questions. So if you’re up for the challenge, join us! Here is a description of what to expect from this book:
“In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence, Barking to the Choir offers a snapshot into the challenges and joys of life on the margins. Sergio, arrested at age nine, in a gang by age twelve, and serving time shortly thereafter, now works with the substance abuse team at Homeboy to help others find sobriety. Jamal, abandoned by his family when he tried to attend school at age seven, gradually finds forgive¬ness for his schizophrenic mother. New father Cuco, who never knew his own dad, thinks of a daily adventure on which to take his four-year-old son. These former gang members uplift the soul and reveal how bright life can be when filled with unconditional love and kindness.
This book is guaranteed to shake up our ideas about God and about people with a glimpse at a world defined by more compassion and fewer barriers. Gently and humorously, Barking to the Choir invites us to find kinship with one another and re-convinces us all of our own goodness.”
