We encourage you to read next Sunday’s lessons ahead of time, they are:   Exodus 17:1-7, Psalm 95, Romans 5:1-11, John 4:5-42

During Lent our Together Tuesdays begin with soup supper starting at 5:15pm, followed by Music Together for children 4 and under (with parents), Children’s Choir for children 5 and up, and Youth & Adult Class in the Gathering Room from 6-6:45pm. The evening concludes with Holden Evening Prayer worship in the Sanctuary at 7pm. Service of the Word worship is offered on Wednesday at noon in the Chapel with a light soup luncheon immediately following.

The CLC Book Club meets on Monday, March 9, 2020, at 7:00pm in the CLCW Room to discuss Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult, a thought-provoking novel about racism, choice, privilege, power, fear, and hope. The novel is based on the true story of a labor and delivery nurse who was prohibited from caring for a newborn because the father requested that no African-American nurses tend to his baby. In the fictional version, Ruth, the African-American nurse in question, finds herself on trial for events related to the same request made by a white supremacist father. Using the narratives of Ruth, the baby’s father, and the white female public defender who takes Ruth’s case (and insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy), Picoult examines multiple facets of racism. The topic of race in America is difficult to talk about, but in an honest and revealing way Picoult allows readers to draw their own conclusions about how we see ourselves and others in the world. (Adapted from Seira Wilson’s The Amazon Book Review.) The discussion will be led by Tonya Cockram.   Looking Ahead: We meet on Monday, April 13, 2020, at 7:00pm in the CLCW Room to discuss Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. The discussion will be led by Gretchen Simas.
