Soul Food @ Colonial Room
Oct 25 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Soul Food meets most Fridays of the school year to discuss a book from a faith perspective. We read a few chapters at a time, and enjoy rich discussions and engaging conversations. In addition we take time to reflect on the upcoming Sunday’s gospel reading, and pray together. All are welcome to join us as we gather to discuss one or all of the books through the year.

Our next series of discussions focuses on best selling author, Rachel Held Evans’ 2015 book, Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving and Finding the Church. Despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing Evans back to Church. She sets out on a journey to understand the teachings in the wider faith community, and to find her place in it. Centered around seven sacraments, Evans’ quest takes readers through a liturgical year with stories about baptism, communion, confirmation, confession, marriage, vocation, and death that are funny, heartbreaking, and sharply honest. A memoir about making do and taking risks, about the messiness of community and the power of grace, Searching for Sunday is about overcoming cynicism to find hope and, somewhere in between, Church.

  • 10/25/19 Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving and Finding the Church, by Rachel Held Evans, p. 1-42 Prologue, Forward, Section 1 (Baptism)
  • 11/01/19 Searching For Sunday p. 43 – 96 Section 2 (Confession)
  • 11/08/19 Searching For Sunday p. 97-160 Sections 3 – 4 (Holy Orders, Communion)

  • 11/22/19 Searching For Sunday p. 203 – 258 Sections 6-7, Epilogue (Annointing the Sick, Marriage, Dark)
  • 11/29/19 Please note:  Soul Food does not meet the day after Thanksgiving

In addition we take time to reflect on the upcoming Sunday’s gospel reading, and pray together. All are welcome to join us as we gather to discuss one or all of the books through the year.

Join us in Advent as we read and discuss Kate Bowler’s Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I’ve Loved.  When a theologian is diagnosed with cancer, all of the clichés and standard reassurances faithful people can sometimes offer suddenly sound surprisingly hollow. Bowler explores the tensions between faith and doubt, the spiritual and the physical, and ultimately debunks the toxic prosperity gospel that can rob us of all true meaning.

  • 12/06/19 Everything Happens For a Reason, And Other Lies I’ve Loved, by Kate Bowler, p. xi – 52, Preface, Ch. 1-4
  • 12/13/19 Everything Happens For a Reason p. 53-105 Ch. 5-6
  • 12/20/19 Everything Happens For a Reason p. 106-176 Ch. 7-9, Appendices 1, 2
  • Please note: Soul Food doesn’t meet on 12/27 or 1/3.
