The Great Partnership: Science, Religion, and the Search For Meaning

Book group begins new read

Tuesdays at 6:15pm beginning April 5

We were so impressed by Jonathan Sacks’ book, Not in God’s Name, that we decided to read another one.  In The Great Partnership, Rabbi Sacks writes with a clear voice about the necessity of both religion and science, with a breadth and depth of understanding of history, social science, and philosophy.  He presents an argument for the important place of religion in society, albeit one of reduced influence in the larger public sphere.  Everyone is invited to read and discuss on Tuesday evenings.  Although the group meets weekly, you can participate whenever you are able and can ‘join’ at any time.

Say No to Religious Violence

Book group begins new read

Tuesdays at 6:15pm beginning January 19th

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks weaves new interpretations of stories from Genesis as he addresses a pressing modern day social problem—religiously motivated violence.  Thoroughly researched and clearly written, this book is helpful as we attempt to be part of the solution rather than part of the ongoing and growing  problem in our community and world.  Everyone is invited to read and discuss on Tuesday evenings beginning January 19th at the church.

Because the book is not yet out in paperback, the cost is $23.00 (a great deal from BookPeople!)
