Book Club Chooses Next Reading

posted Dec 10, 2013, 4:23 PM by Interfaith WS

Interfaith Winston-Salem’s book club will read “Getting to the Heart of Interfaith” as its first book for 2014. 

 “Getting to the Heart of Interfaith” is written by Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Sheikh Jamal Rahman.  The authors discuss 1) what they like about their religions, 2) what about their religion makes them uncomfortable and 3) what about their religion they would like other people to know. 

The book club will meet in Room 201 at the Central Branch of the Forsyth Public Library on Tuesday, Jan. 14 and Tuesday, Jan. 21 to discuss the book.  Sessions are scheduled for 6:30-8 p.m.  Bob Schwartz of Temple Emanuel and the Rev. Ellen Yarborough of Green Street Church will facilitate the discussion in January.

Individuals who are interested in the club may purchase the book online.  For example, Amazon has new copies for less than $6 and used copies for less than one dollar plus shipping.  You may read reviews here.

Participants have decided to read one book every two months and have discussion sessions on the second and third Tuesday in alternating months (January, March, May, etc.).

Previously, members of the interfaith club have read “Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life” by Karen Armstrong and “The Pursuit of Happyness” by Chris Gardner. 

Individuals interested in having their names to the mailing list for this and future announcements should contact Barbara Bowman at
