In this episode, Rachel leads Sarah, Erin, and Bri in a recap discussion of the latest Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club selection: Edie Wadsworth’s memoir All the Pretty Things.
What makes poverty such a complex and thorny problem? What is the essence of Christian hospitality (and how does it tie into evangelism)? How does experiencing church for the first time (or for the first time … again) help us appreciate God’s gifts with new eyes? How can a memoir teach us compassion for people who carry around wounds we may know nothing about?
At the end of the discussion, the Ladies announce the next book club read: Rosa Young’s Light in the Dark Belt.
