Home 9 Advocacy 9 Plowshares

 Plowshares Book Group

Plowshares is a book discussion group meeting 4-5 times per year that is open to both members of the congregation and the community at large. By participating in regular group discussions of challenging books, we hope to learn more about issues facing our community and the people in it. We would also like to deepen our relationships with each other and to better understand what our walks with Christ should look like. Our name comes from Isaiah 2:4 (“They shall beat their swords into plowshares”) and is meant to both suggest our interest in social justice issues and highlight our desire to plow into the selected book and share our thoughts.

Summer 2024 Book Selection “Horse” by Geraldine Brooks

SUNDAY, JULY 28, 2024 | 12:15-1:30 pm | lUNCH AND DISCUSSION

Our book club’s selection for July is “Horse” by Geraldine Brooks. This historical novel imagines the story of a real-life record-breaking thoroughbred (“Lexington”) who won his last race in 1855. Interwoven with that story, Geraldine Brooks adds a modern-day plot involving a painting of the horse and its bones.

Join for a light lunch and table discussion about the book. There will be a $5 charge for the event (payable at the door) to support the Advocacy Committee budget.

Purchase the book online here, or pick up a copy from the church for $10 in June. Registration will open in June.
