BOOK GROUP First Pres Readers, please join us for our next book group on Sunday, February 16th from 3-5pm in the Friendship Hall.  We are reading, The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion Is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian by Brian McLaren.  From a description of the book, “Brian McLaren, a leading voice in contemporary religion, argues that— notwithstanding the dire headlines about the demise of faith and drop in church attendance—Christian faith is not dying. Rather, it is embarking on a once-in-an-era spiritual shift. For millions, the journey has already begun.”
