We hope to hear from some of you about what you are reading this summer! Pastor Leah Grundset Davis begins this week:
What I’m reading:
The Universal Christ, by Richard Rohr I heard some rumors that we might have a few book discussions at RBC over the summer (more info coming soon) so I thought I should start reading. This is one of those books that is liberating and focuses on the expansiveness of God’s love.
Maybe I Can Love My Neighbor Too, by Jennifer Grant This book is a hit at my house! We often think that loving our neighbor is difficult, but Grant reminds us of just how simple love can be. She also wrote RBC favorite, Maybe God is Like That Too.
Stony the Road: Reconstruction, White Supremacy and the Rise of Jim Crow, by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. I’ve been working through this book for awhile. History, narrative, and a call for justice meet. Anything by Dr. Gates is excellently written and this is no exception. As I continue to understand my own white privilege, it’s important to understand the history that many of us were never taught.
