Issues & Ideas: Belonging (what it means to be in community)
Welcome to the 12th year of Issues and Ideas, our monthly book review forum where members of First’s congregation are invited to find new and old friends and discuss ideas after coffee hour on the 4th Sunday of each month. We meet in the library next to Workman Hall, where usually two reviewers present a 15 minute review each of a book relevant to the congregational theme of the month. This is followed by questions and discussion, and you can participate or just listen. Everyone is welcome.
