The 4:30 Book Study Group – an excellent opportunity for adult Christian education – has multiple study/discussion series during the year, each consisting of approximately 5 to 6 weeks. We are primarily a self-led group with members sharing a rotation of weekly leadership and selection of new reading material. All are welcome to attend even if you don’t think you can make all sessions of a particular series. Some of the authors which we have read include Marcus Borg and Dominic Crosson, Cynthia Bourgeault, Barbara Brown Taylor, Sinclair Lewis, Rene Girard, Karen Armstrong, Delia Ilio, Howard Thurman, and Richard Rohr.
