Pastor’s Book Group: Join Pastor Scott Dalgarno in reading I Will Love you in the Summertime. "Between the rupture of life and the rapture of language lies a world of awe and witness."
The August essay (not book) choice is this wonderful short exposition by the essayist/poet, Christian Wiman.  Nothing I have read in the past year equals this for spiritual power.  I am not exaggerating.  
We will meet Sunday, August 27, after worship to discuss this remarkable essay.  Link at https://theamericanscholar.org/i-will-love-you-in-the-summertime/#
