|Round table or square, seats filled or sparse, the Spirit surrounds even the most casual conversation, as we seek to care for and learn from each other and from our book of choice.|
|WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW|
Reading and discussion for Ladder to the Light continues. Currently the group is meeting on Friday afternoons, but they are reevaluating a return to Wednesdays because of scheduling conflicts. One thing we are agreed upon, however, is trying to have a local in-person session for those in the Rochester area (also zoomed for our distant members) at least once a month. New members are always welcome to join. Use the CONTACT TAB above to receive the ZOOM link.
This fall, we will be reading and discussing Ladder to the Light: An Indigenous Elder’s Meditations on Hope and Courage by Steven Charlston. We are planning on meeting in person to regroup after summer but are considering continuing online after that. Stay tuned for updates, or check the Calendar for any immediate changes.
Food for Thought dates back to 2011 as one of the South Church first Acts of Faith, meeting at the Mt. Hope Diner across from the church building on South at East Henrietta Roads. The group is fluid, participants join for a short or long period with no expectation of attendance just the joy of fellowship when we meet. Books have included Bible studies, memoir, controversial authors, contemporary and Christian books read in small sections that are easily discussed. COVID forced us to creatively join via
ZOOM, thus we have had members who move away continue to enjoy fellowship via computer as well as when we travel via smart phone.
In addition to reading and discussing challenges that help us grow in faith, we have also provided mission efforts in feeding the homeless and collecting items for gifting or charities.
