ILSC Book Club

This month we're reading Shame by Salman Rushdie. Written in the style of magic realism, this book portrays the lives of Iskander Harappa and General Raza Hyder and their relationship. The central theme of the novel is that begetting "shame" begets violence. The concepts of 'shame' and 'shamelessness' are explored through all of the characters. Whether you've read a little or a lot, we've all got something to share to please, join us!

ILSC Socially-Distanced Picnic

We're hoping to hold a picnic later this month, but we want to make sure that we are safe and within the public guidelines for this get together, so if you're interested, please contact Pastor Sarah. We may be physically-distanced but we'll definitely be socially-connected!
