What happens at Bookclub stays at Bookclub



About 6 weeks ago, to give an opportunity for fellowship, we began a women's ministry at Vintage. Since we had so many people interested in it, we decided to offer a book club and a Bible study. Both groups have been very well attended. I opted for the book club since that seemed a little more manageable to me.

We are nearly finished now with the delightful Lauren Winner's Mudhouse Sabbath. There's no way to say with any certainty that it is the book that has bonded us, or if the chemistry was all right there to begin with, but this has really become one of those extraordinary experiences that you look back on and say, "Wow, everything was different after that."

It is part of the code that we keep the confidences of the group to ourselves, but I can say that this group has been one of the best parts of my life this summer.

I LOVE this book as well as Girl Meets God which is one of my very favorite books.... Great choice for book club selection!

I feel the same way.

I've never read any of her books, but this sounds really interesting....Jewish rituals are fascinating to me.
