The book we're reading together!
Merry Christmas Eve! I hope that you all are really enjoying relaxing and spending time with your loved ones!
WELCOME to the new blog for New Church Berkeley, College Life! My apologies for the late start on the blog; I know it’s been 5 days since the semester ended, and all of you are eager to start reading and discussing our selection for the book club! If you don’t already know, the text for our winter break online book club is The Reason for God by the eloquent Timothy Keller! If you haven’t already procured for yourself a copy, you can borrow one for free at your local library, order a really cheap used one from Amazon, or get yourself a shiny new copy from any bookstore.
We’re praying that reading and discussing this book together will help us learn together, grow in Christ, and become better encouragers of each other (and it will help keep us in touch over the winter break, too). So create yourself a WordPress account, and get ready to publish your own thoughts in our discussion to this very blog! Below you will find a reading schedule based on the four weeks of break! Soon, the administrators will be posting several prompts to get your neural synapses and your heartstrings going. Feel free to pose any questions for discussion in your own blog posts as well! Alright, hope you guys are excited to share as we dig into this book!
