Book Study this Sunday

Bethany Book Group!

We will discuss October's book, Gilead by Marilynne Robinson after church on Sunday, November 7th.

November's read, to be discussed after church on Sunday, December 5th: Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen Not long after Rhoda Janzen turned forty, her world turned upside down. It was bad enough that her husband of fifteen years left her for Bob, a guy he met on, but that same week a car accident left her injured. Needing a place to rest and pick up the pieces of her life, Rhoda packed her bags, crossed the country, and returned to her quirky Mennonite family's home, where she was welcomed back with open arms and offbeat advice. (Rhoda's good-natured mother suggested that she get over her heart-break by dating her first cousin -he owned a tractor, see.) Written with wry humor and huge personality - and tackling faith, love, family, and aging—Mennonite in a Little Black Dress is an immensely moving memoir of healing, certain to touch anyone who has ever had to look homeward in order to move ahead.
