TED will continue reading our new book for 3 more sessions, each evening covering 8 chapters. Next time will be chapters 9 - 16. We will meet Nov. 8th (election night), Nov. 22, and will complete the book on Dec. 13  before our Christmas break. We will begin a new book the second Tuesday in January.  There are still a few copies of The Unlikely Pilgrimage available in the church office for $12.80. 
 
I was delighted with the discussion this past Tuesday of the first 8 chapters.  People just dove right in and couldn't stop talking about it! It is comical, poignant, puzzling and profound all at once.
