Desert Island Book Book Club

Written by: Julia Smolucha

The Reverend Dr. William A. Evertsberg

Christian Education which featured a single imperious lecturer pontificating at students dozing in straight rows was probably dying long before the pandemic, but new habits born during our isolation hastened it demise, so we’re using 2023 to experiment with new pedagogy. Instead of a single authority, we’ll teach and learn together in a circle from the greatest contemporary (mostly) literature. Kathy and Bill Evertsberg will host at home at 7 p.m., unless the group is bigger than 15; then we’ll move to church.

All are welcome; please RSVP to Karen Gaynor
