Geneva, cleaning out some stuff at home, remembered our Lenten focus on a Sacred Conversation on Race. So she went through culling her books, and has given the church a number of titles that relate to issues of race.
If anyone wishes to do some extra reading on the subjects, all these books will be on the window sill at the east end of the upper narthex (by the elevator). There will be a sign-out sheet for you to write down the name of the book and your name, but mostly this lending library will be on the honor system. Geneva donated them and we offer them to be read and shared… so it’s better to take a book and pass it on then to leave them untouched on the windowsill!
