Church group starting a new book discussion
COAL TOWNSHIP - St John's United Methodist Church's Book and Breakfast Club will discuss its fourth book, "Stumbling into Grace" by Lisa Harper, at 10 a.m. Saturday in the church parsonage at 1218 W. Arch St. Harper was the featured speaker at the 2012 Fall Women's Retreat at Sandy Cove, in North East, Md.
Part diary, part devotional, "Stumbling Into Grace" weaves hilarious and poignant stories from Harper's life with intimate encounters from the life of Christ. Prayers, reflection questions and journal prompts help women dig deep into biblical truths to better understand how Jesus' compassion, affection and constancy make every single moment of life more enjoyable and worth living.
Some of the chapter headings are: "The Very Real Problem With Pantyhose," "Busyness is Not a Spiritual Gift" and "Getting Our Squeeze On."
All women in the community are welcome to participate in one or all of the 14 weeks of the book club.
For more information or to register, call Pastor Karyn Fisher 648-2842. The cost for the book for the 10-week session is $15.
The group recently completed the book "Really Bad Girls of the Bible," by Lisa Curtis Higgs.
