Adult Ed Reads New Book

bookSpeaking of Sin” – this is the title of the new book we will be reading during the next two sessions of our First Wednesday Meetings. The author is Barbara Taylor Brown, and it is easy to obtain a personal copy online through a service like

I know, “sin” is an uncomfortable subject.
But avoiding it does not make it go away. Anybody living with the consequences of sin knows this.

And there are many consequences. Barbara Brown Taylor categorizes them with four words:

  1. Alienation
  2. Deformation
  3. Damnation
  4. Death

The good part is this: When we recognize the meaning of sin, God opens us to the realities of redemption and salvation.

From this perspective, Barbara Brown Taylor’s book is one of hope and encouragement. If you feel you could use a dose of that, please join our meeting.

The next meeting is on Wednesday, August 7, at 7:00 PM in fellowship hall. Please have at least a part of the book read – it is easy reading.
