You are all invited for fun, food, and fellowship to discuss a neat little Christmas book, The Christmas Quilt, by Vanetta Chapman. If you live close to Louisville, KY grab a friend and head on over to join us!
We’ll meet in the Connections Center @ Middletown United Methodist Church, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. We bring treats to eat and share and enjoy great discussion on our book selection. (For more information on book club, click on…)
If you’ve not read the book yet, no worries. I’ve heard more than one gal say she wants to hear the discussion first before deciding whether or not to read it! You’ll have fun regardless.
A compelling read, author Vanetta Chapman draws you into the Amish life with characters you’ll love and others you’d like to have a good talkin’ to…a wake-up-and-smell-the-coffee kind of talk.
This book is part of the Quilts of Love novels from Abingdon Press. This spring we read another one of these, Beyond The Storm, by Carolyn Zane. These books offer a variety of topics, characters, you-name-it. (There are currently twelve.)
The common threads, by God’s grace, are elements of faith, and strengths from struggles infused in these characters. Power from His Word is known by some and discovered by others.
Although we are meeting the week of Thanksgiving , we’ll prepare our hearts for Christmas. This Christmas selection will show us what’s most important to focus on: our many blessings and the relevance of God’s Word.
Our book encircles, via a quilt-making, one of my favorite verses from Galatians 5:22-23 on the fruit of the Spirit: “But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control…” You’ll love how the author weaves stories around each of the fruits. Charming.
We hope to see you on Monday the 25th! If you have any questions, feel free to call Nancy Tinnell at (502) 245-8839.
We’ll pick up with Part 3 of 5 in our Series on Fear with more fun excerpts from Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolates by Debora M. Coty next week.
Til next time!
