Our December meeting was a joyful event. We had had to miss November, since most people were unable to attend, so we were glad to be together again and had much to share with one another.
Becoming Human sparked quite a lot of conversation and discussion of personal experiences with some of the topics on which Vanier focused in this series of talks. His insights were judged to be of considerable value, especially as we grow in maturity and begin to think about the aging process. Since there were some who had not yet finished the book, we thought we might revisit it later.
We looked at some recommendations and handouts, and decided on the following reads:
For January, The Song at the Scaffold by Gertrude von le Fort (an Ignatius Press reprint).
For February, our third anniversary, one of the plays from Dorothy Sayers‘ play cycle on the life of Christ, The Man Born to be King. These were radio plays produced on the BBC during World War II. Scripts will be provided at the January club meeting. We would like to have another potluck dinner, since last year’s dinner and playreading made for such a great evening.
For March, Sacred Reading: The Ancient Art of Lectio Divina by Michael Casey.
Stay tuned for our report on our meeting in January, when we will vote on our favourite book of 2011!
