If you’ve been around here any length of time, then you know I love a good book club. I think books (fiction and non-fiction) can help us understand ourselves and others better. When we understand each other, we can establish stronger relationships with fellow parishioners, neighbors, friends, and the Lord. That’s why I’m so excited to share with you about the New Hope Book Club from OSV.
This parish book club is an example of what can happen when everyone at the parish is on the same page. A focus on a particular topic for all formation from children to teens to adults can transform your parish culture!
It’s almost time to say the “A-Word” again … not the 3 letter one, the 8 letter one we can sing on Easter Sunday and every day for the 50 days after that! I love ALL of the versions of Alleluia songs and psalms and refrains! (super happy Latin Easter song at the bottom of this post)
What’s your motivation? Why does this new ministry need to be started? Who are you looking to emulate?
“It’s time to make a mess. It’s time to change the world. And we are just the fools to do it.” Matthew Warner wrote a super short, super inspiring book on evangelization! If you haven’t heard of it, I’m rectifying that issue today. It’s time to change the world!!
Every January people make resolutions to read and pray more to deepen their spiritual life. These parish book club ideas can help women of the parish do both!
