Fall Theological Seminar

The Fall Theological Seminar begins on Wednesday, September 12. This year, we will be reading a wonderful novel by Marilynne Robinson called Gilead. You can easily pick up an inexpensive copy at Christ the Lightgiver Bookstore. This year, groups will also be meeting in Georgetown (at the home of Mike and Linda Brown) and in Killeen (at the offices of Randy Hardin). So, where ever you may be in Central Texas this fall, on Wednesday evenings, plan on joining us at 7pm as we discuss this lovely book.

This novel won a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Critic’s Award. The book takes the form of a long letter that an aging Congregationalist minister writes to his son over a six month period in 1956.
