Summer Reading: The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in A Changing World by the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Join the clergy and fellow parishioners as we read this wonderful book together over the summer. The authors, two joyful spiritual leaders, attempt to answer the timeless question: How are we able to find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering? There will be opportunities to discuss the book in the Fall. Copies of the book are available at church or on Amazon.
