Spiritual Book Club

An ecumenical spiritual book club open to all who want to share the journey through the writings of those who have lived extraordinary and inspiring lives.

Our first meeting on Sunday 7 September we will review “Dying to be Me” (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dying-Be-Me-Journey-Healing/dp/1848507836/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1409308797&sr=1-1&keywords=dying+to+be+me) by Anita Moorjani, a remarkable story of a near-death experience and a complete healing from terminal cancer.

“The Snow Leopard” by Peter Matthiessen (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Snow-Leopard-Peter-Matthiessen/dp/009977111X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1409308863&sr=1-1&keywords=snow+leopard) will be reviewed at our second meeting on Sunday 12 October. The author recounts his journey to the Himalayas as a biologist, which parallels his profound inner journey along the way.
