Good Book Club
The Good Book Club began Friday, Jan. 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, and ends Shrove Tuesday, Feb. 21. This year we are exploring
the Books of Ruth and Esther. There is a free, downloadable study guide here. If you would like to take a free course, you can sign up here. Here are biographies of Ruth and Esther.
Here is a link to the readings.
