The Greatest Thing - Book Club

Join Albert Bogle for a one off event concluding our theme 'The Greatest Thing'. We will be reading and discussing the book by Henry Drumond that inspired the theme 'The Greatest Thing in The World'. 

'What is the use of having faith? It is to connect the soul with God. And what is the object of connecting man with God? That he may become like God. But God is Love. Hence Faith, the means, is in order to Love, the end. Love, therefore, obviously is greater than faith. "If I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing."' Henry Drumond

Exploring C.S Lewis

NEW Book Club - Thursday at 8PM

Sign up will open on Thursday the 24th of October

Exploring C.s Lewis is a new Book Club from Sanctuary First. Every week on Thursday at 8PM Sandy Smith will lead an online book club focusing on the works of C.S Lewis. The first of C.S Lewis’s books covered in this Club will be ‘Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life’. This first run of the Club will start on the 1st of October and finish on the 31st of October, which the chapters divided evenly between the five weeks.

This book club is offered primarily to all those who have perhaps not read anything of Lewis or very little and will serve as an introduction into the man himself, who he was, what he stood for and what he believed in. That said, if you have read or re-read some titles many times you will still be welcome to take the journey but be aware, you might be travelling with beginners.

 

If you love books, are looking to be part of a new book club and are willing and keen to meeting and chat with new people, then come along and join us on Thursday at 8PM for ‘Exploring C.S Lewis!
