Books are recommended by people like you and me, read and reviewed by several others, then if chosen to be a part of the Reading Program are then shared with the rest of us. We are encouraged to think critically about current issues through this annual selection of member-reviewed books. It is an excellent opportunity to deepen your spirituality and to broaden your understanding of our mission work. Five category areas provide us with books to:
- Expand our understanding of and participation in God’s mission.
- Increase our sensitivity to all human beings—their needs, interests and concerns.
- Encourage our critical thinking about issues facing humanity today.
- Grow in our understanding of Scripture as it relates to Christian faith in contemporary life.
- Enhance our self-knowledge and actions from that knowledge.
- Strengthen our involvement in local and global Christian mission.
