Easter & Spring Book Club: The Book of JOY


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

It's Easter. It's Spring! Now what? BOOK CLUB!

Many faith traditions focus this time of year on themes of new life, rebirth, and living a joyful and meaningful life.

Join Scott Painter and Jennifer Battle for Easter Book Club, so we can read and discuss together The Book of Joy by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness The Dalia Lama.

This Discussion Group is open to everybody--no need to be a member of Grace (or even a member of the Christian religion!) to attend, so invite your friends! We will meet four times during the Spring in the Grace Parish Hall (4040 W. Bellfort Ave.) on the following Sunday evenings from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

April 8 - Opening Conversation (No need to read for this day)

April 22 - Discuss 2 sections in the book: "The Nature of True Joy" and "The Obstacles to Joy"

May 6 - Discuss the final section in the book: "The Eight Pillars of Joy"

May 13 - Final Reflections, Guided Meditation

To order your book with our group, please RSVP to Scott Painter by Monday, April 2 at Vicar@GraceinHouston.org. Books will be distributed on our first gathering. (Of course, you can order your own also!)
