This Autumn our congregation will begin an “all-church book read.” The book we have selected is:
Disunity in Christ: Uncovering the Hidden Forces that Keep Us Apart by Christena Cleveland.
Cleveland uses research from social psychology to explain some of the reasons we find unity and common ground so hard to reach, even though we all call ourselves “followers of Christ.” She weaves personal anecdotes of her church life into the many research examples cited. Each chapter has helpful discussion questions. Book discussion groups will be offered at several host locations with day and evening groups available so that everyone can participate.
