TAKE THIS BREAD – Monthly discussion of the book “Take This Bread – the spiritual memoir of a twenty-first century Christian” This book awakens us to the power and the joy of the Sacrament of Holy Communion as a spiritual practice for our lives, a practice that can lead us to deeper engagement with serving the needs of the hungry. It’s a favorite book of Susanne Mullin and Brent Gundlah and has been discussed recently by the Stoughton UCC Church. Meets once a month after church from 11:30 – 12:15. Come to as many sessions as you can A limited supply of books will be available outside the church office. Feel free to obtain the book on your own or on your kindle. Our first Session will be on Chapter 6 “First Communion.” We ask you to read that chapter ahead of time, skimming the previous 5 chapters as needed for background. Sign up outside the church office or in the Parish Hall.
