*Nov 12th-Religious Book Study Group: You are invited to participate in the Religion Study Group as they begin their next book, Paradoxology: Spirituality in a Quantum Universe, on Wednesday, November 12 at 10 AM.  This book blends science and spirituality to see whole truths that “make all things new.” Its aim is to help us realize that we who are people of faith cannot continue to practice our faith in isolation anymore. A quantum universe is telling us that we are all connected; that the God of one is the God of all; that diversity is a blessing; that the suffering of any of earth’s people or any part of the planet is a desecration to us all.  The benefit of the book is to jump start us in a new spiritual direction that is as energizing as it is surprising. It encourages us to look at life through a new lens that will help us see more than we have ever seen before. It is one of those rare books on quantum science that transcends information and offers us a way of transformation.  Everyone is welcome! Please join us for lively conversations on Wednesdays at 10 AM in the Library.
*Nov 16th-Grubby Sunday/Chili Cook Off: Please join us Sunday, November 16th in participating in Grubby Sunday!
