Teesside Group – Journeyings
“Journeyings” is a monthly ecumenical Book Club. It includes Quakers, Methodists, Catholics, Anglicans and anyone else who wishes to participate.
We are a friendly, articulate, questioning group of people, very accepting of different points of view, and trusting of each other to disagree and remain good friends. We are concerned for each other, and supportive of each other.
At our May meeting we shall begin to consider books for reading from September. Among those suggested are:
Alain de Botton’s - Religion for Atheists
Noel Moules - Fingerprints of Fire: Footprints of Peace
Francis Spufford - Unapologetic
We decide as a group
