Worship and Potluck Brunch with Rev. Vance-Ocampo 1/26 Rev. Shannan Vance-Ocampo, General Presbyter of Southern New England, will lead us in worship January 26. Following worship, join us for a potluck luncheon and presentation about our presbytery downstairs in the Peace Room. All are welcome to share a dish for lunch, and to share in this time of fellowship with our Presbyter.
Book Group Discussion 2/8 We will be discussing What is the What: The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng by Dave Eggers on Saturday, February 8, 10:30am–12noon (place TBA). If you have any questions about the group, contact Bob Pruchniewicz or Kathy Cooper. About the Book:What is the What is the epic novel based on the life of Valentino Achak Deng, who, along with thousands of other children—the so-called Lost Boys—was forced to leave his village in Sudan at the age of seven and trek hundreds of miles by foot, pursued by militias, government bombers, and wild animals, crossing the deserts of three countries to find freedom. When he finally is resettled in the United States, he finds a life full of promise, but also heartache and myriad new challenges. Moving, suspenseful, and unexpectedly funny, What Is the What is an astonishing novel that illuminates the lives of millions through one extraordinary man. It was a finalist for the National Book Award.
