Weekday Seekers Group

Do you have questions?  Are there things that you have been taught or heard about the Christian faith that don’t make a lot of sense to you or that you may be struggling with?  Would you like to try on practices that could help open you to an experience of the Holy in the midst of your life?  Beginning October 2, this seekers group will meet every other Monday morning until November 27th walking together as we learn, re-relearn and practice together in a judgment free zone of love, acceptance, support and challenge.  If you are interested or would like to learn more, please speak with Pastor Stacy ([email protected])

Dear book lovers of UCW,

As we approach a new season of literary exploration, we are offering a thoughtful collection of multicultural writing by authors representing  the varied voices and perspectives of  people who view the American experience from the standpoint of displacement and assimilation.

The partial list includes the following:

The Sympathizer by Viet Than Nguyen (Vietnamese-American), 2016 Pulitzer Prize  Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri  ( Indian-American)  Pulitzer Prize 2000

Things Fall Apart  by Chinua Achebe  (Nigerian)

Breath,  Eyes, Memory by Edwidge Danticat  (Haitian –American)

Books by Amy Tan  (Chinese –American),  Amara Lakhous (Algerian),  Katherine Boo (American)   and other suggestions from the group

Our first meeting is on October 31  (last Tuesday of the month), 7 PM.  Our first book will be The Sympathizer by  Viet Than Nguyen, in tandem with the PBS series on the Vietnam War.  For a copy of the book,  please get in touch with Stacy   [email protected])

Some  suggested questions we can ask as we read these books  are :  What appeals to me in these multicultural writings?   With what do I disagree?    How does the book relate to the current climate of divergent views on immigration and a multicultural society?  By reading stories different from my own, what universal themes do I see and identify with regarding  love, family, loss, spirituality, and resilience in the human journey?

Feel free to invite others to our Book Group.         Priscilla, Stacy, and Alan
