Wednesday Night Live - with a twist

Wednesday Night Live is a great opportunity to gather with friends and church family to reflect on issues that are meaningful to us as individuals and as a society. The upcoming session of WNL promises to be thought provoking and intriguing. We'll be exploring the book "same kind of different As me: a modern-day slave, an international art dealer, and the unlikely woman who bound them together." We'll read the book and discuss it using the provided study guide and DVDs. The book will surely challenge the ways we think of "others" and the ways our attitudes and behaviors affect the lives of those around us. 

 The Wednesdays we’ll be meeting are Sept 9-Oct 14. If you would like to join this class you will need a copy of the book. You can order them online or through the church. If you order through the church the cost is $12. The deadline for orders is 9:00pm, Sunday, August 30. That's not much because you’ll need to start reading the book before our first meeting. So please make your decision soon and email the church office with your order. There will also be a sign up sheet for WNL in the Gathering Space. Please note that we will not be having a meal before the class. Class will begin at 6:00 and finish by 7:30. Childcare will be provided if needed but you must sign up. 

Please give careful consideration to attending this session of WNL as we hope it will serve as a springboard for further conversation.
