I invite all readers to join us for the October reading group. Once a month, a friend and I choose a book on spirituality or religious studies. We then get together to discuss our responses to the reading, as well as how the book connects to our spiritual journeys. At the beginning of each month I will post the new selection. Later in the month I will share my review and reflections, and invite other readers to share comments.
In October we will be reading Made for Goodness: Why this makes all the difference by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu. Archbishop Tutu is well-known as a vigorous opponent of apartheid in South Africa, a leader for reconciliation in that country, and a tireless worker for peace and social justice. His co-author and daughter, Mpho Tutu, also is an Anglican minister and a social justice activist, and the founder of The Tutu Institute for Prayer and Pilgrimage. In this book, the authors describe their source of strength and optimism, and their firm belief that God has made people for goodness, despite all the darkness in the world, and we need to heed this calling. Join me and be inspired!
