Book Club

Book Club

Oakwood Book Club is for those who  are interested in books, theology, faith, talking!


Working with LCI, the Leeds Church Institute, we’re bringing opportunities to discuss books relating to specific issues, or of particular personal interest

 

What happens... someone is passionate about a book; we hear from that individual about the book and conversation flows. Some have read the book and contribute, others engage with the ideas, others are inspired to go away and read it


We usually meet from 19.30 to 21.00 in the Sanctuary at Oakwood Church on one Tuesday of each month but please check the Calendar before travelling


Do you have a book that has made a difference to your faith - one that you would like to share?


If so please

 





Note There is usually a copy of each book to be discussed (and those previously discussed) available to borrow from the book shelves at the back of the Sanctuary… but you don’t have to read the book before coming along to a meeting

God Has a Dream: A Vision of Hope for Our Time

by Desmond Tutu

discussion led by Sonia Kasibante


Archbishop Tutu reaches out to readers of all religious backgrounds, showing how individual and global suffering can be transformed into joy and redemption. With his characteristic humour, Tutu offers an extremely personal and liberating message. He helps us to “see with the eyes of the heart” and to cultivate the qualities of love, forgiveness, humility, generosity, and courage that we need to change ourselves and our world.
