"Christmas in the Four Gospels"  registration required 

How might a house look for Christmas based on what each Gospel says about it? In "Christmas in the Four Gospel Homes", beautiful illustrations from architect Kevin Burns reimagine each of the four Gospels as a “house,” which the church visits at Christmas. In each section, Cynthia M. Campbell reflects on the distinctive perspective of the birth of Jesus or the incarnation offered by each Gospel.  Presented as a group study at Calm in the Chaos, Christmas in the Four Gospel Homes could just be what you need to ground yourself this holiday season. 

                   Four Sunday evenings - November 28, December 5, 12 and 19                     7:00 - 8:00 each evening        Nora Hampton, presenter

We're different from traditional book clubs.  
We usually don't all read the same book at the same time, but now and then we do!
When you attend, please bring a book to share that has moved you and/or touched your Spirit.  It does not have to be a "spiritual" book per se but one that has been important in your life.  Plan to read a short excerpt for the group, and then let us know why you brought this particular book.  Of course, you will hear from others about books that have motivated them.  
No reservation needed; just pop in with your book.
