OK ladies, we are jumping right in with both feet.
None of this “we’re going to start a book group … soon!” for us. Nope. Even though we have launched near the holidays when many people are super busy and the semester is nearly done, we can’t wait.
But we’re not insensitive to the real world either.
With this in mind, our first book will be Ann Voskamp’s The Greatest Gift: unwrapping the full love story of Christmas. It’s a 24 day devotional, starting on December 1st. It’s available on kindle for a little over $9.00. I know cash can be tight, so if you’re not able to swing the book, still show up and participate in the discussion.
It’s a bold move, is it not, for the first book to be a devotional?!
But it’s about Jesus and our hope is that it can center us as a community in a season that can whisper (and scream) DO more, BUY more, REACH OUT more, CREATE MEMORIES more. And we forget it’s a love story … told for you. For us.
We’ll start discussing The Greatest Gift on December 3rd. In classic Ann Voskamp style, she has created a beautiful print out of 24 ornaments for a Jesse tree. You can download them by going here and entering JESSE.
November 26th will find us discussing devotionals – what do you think of them? Which would you recommend? So, get your thinking caps on and come back ready to share.
For those of you who are curious, January’s book is going to be a novel and we’ll have some non-fiction this spring.
Are you in? Anyone excited about this?
