The book that we will be using for the Fall Theological Seminar is now available. It’s called The 21: A Journey into the Land of the Coptic Martyrs. It’s an international best-seller by a German journalist named Martin Mosbach, and it’s about the 21 Egyptians who were martyred in Libya in 2015 by Islamic State terrorists.
Back to School. St Thomas School, that is. If you started out with us back in the summer and have since become too busy—or if you haven’t yet tried out the school—this is a good time to get involved. We’re starting a new section in our current textbook.
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.
