It was good to have Major Andrea back from her activities at the ICO and to hear of the exciting things that God has spoken to her about and her adventures.
We listened with excitement as Andrea unpacked her reading of ‘Thin Places’ and her trip to Coventry Cathedral. The group shared the storyline of ‘One Tuesday Morning’ as not everyone had read this book. An excellent work by Karen Kingsbury would be recommended by the book club readers. Anyone interested in reading this title is assured of a good read; the storyline covers the effects on two families at the time of the collapse of the Twin Towers 9/11. The sequel ‘Beyond Tuesday Morning’ continues the story with the same characters.
We all enjoyed the comfort, chat and coffee and once again achieved our aim to socialise and discuss books outside the church environment. The next book to be read is: ‘Elephant Whisperer’ by Graham Spence and Lawrence Anthony: learning about life, loyalty and freedom from a remarkable herd of wild elephants. We invite you to join us at Costa Coffee on Monday 16th July at 2pm. We are very relaxed and there is no pressure whatsoever to purchase books, drinks or achieve reading the titles in any given timescale.
In August we will be reading two shorter books – ‘They Gave Their Lives’ by Alan Bateman together with ‘For Such A Time’ by Jenty Fairbank: The story of the young Florence Booth.
Our aim in September will be to visit IHQ coffee shop for a special book club meeting. Anyone who would like to join us and have a guided tour of the glass building that is 101 Queen Victoria Street is most welcome. Please let either Trish Hall or Major Andrea know in advance (or contact us).
On behalf of the book club members, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Costa Coffee for their hospitality and use of their premises. Happy reading.
