The Spring Book Club

Starting May 1, 2019

Join with others in a unique book club experience. We’ll dive into this New York Time’s Bestseller and discover just how important this book is for our time.

An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor is a beautifully written book that helps us tune into meaningful ways to discover the sacred in the small things we do and see, from simple practices such as walking, working, and prayer. Through Taylor’s expert guidance, and thought-provoking prose, we learn to live with purpose, pay attention, slow down, and practice reverence.

What a great way to bring some presence and attention to your soul this spring!

Book Club Membership includes:

  • Participate from anywhere in the world.

  • Weekly Reading plan to help you track well and wrap up the book by the beginning of the summer. Freedom to read at your own pace!

  • Bi-weekly emails (six in total) chalk full of resources to amplify your reading, and support you in bringing the words of the book into your every day life. Emails can be read as your schedule allows.

  • Resources include: hand-picked contemplative practices for each chapter, music playlist, video links, poetry, and additional optional reading to help you discover the “altars” in nearly everything we do and in everywhere we go.

  • Two Zoom Online calls to chat with other book-club members. Learn together in this online community.

    • Each call will include a special guest and will be recorded in case you’re unable to make it live.

Date and location to be determined in mid June.
