“But, Erin,” you ask, “why bother?”

Indeed, why bother with Sabbath Rest Book Talk?

  • Because if you only read non-fiction, you’re gonna have a hard time staying human.
  • Because if you only read non-fiction, you’re not feeding the part of you created for parable.
  • Because if you don’t think about the fiction you’ve read, you’re letting a part of your soul starve.
  • Because if you don’t learn from story, you’re not fully living out your humanity.

One Sunday evening each month, please join us for an interactive event where we’ll talk about the role of reading fiction in the development of the whole person, the healing of relationships, and the revitalization of the human mind, heart and soul.

We’ll be hosting the event over on my YouTube Channel as a YouTube Live Event.  You can still comment and play along, of course.
