UWF Book Club, Givens on Sweeten Creek
The Book Club will meet Saturday, November 19, at the home of Karen Gaddy in Givens on Sweeten Creek at 10 a.m. We will discuss the book “Learning to Walk in the Dark” by Barbara Brown Taylor and then stay for lunch. Taylor is the author of over a dozen books, this one published in 2014. Taylor spent about 20 years of her life as a priest in the Episcopal church. She left the position when she lost her faith in the institution she was serving, but continued to think and re-think her beliefs about various aspects of her own faith struggles. This book probes the meaning of the dark, how its often and usual associations are with the sinister; here Taylor explores the good that we can find in the dark. Her thoughts help lead us into re-thinking our own considerations about the dark and how we might find light there as well.
