The First UMC book Club will review HIKING THROUGH by Paul Stutzman on June 19th at 7:00pm in the Prayer room.  Read the book and then come and join us.  This will be our last book before the summer break.
 
You might want to read some of our selections from this year over the summer. They included: Orphan Train, 1,000 White Women, The Fault in our Stars, Margot, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid and Breaking Night.  All excellent reads.
 
Here is a brief summary of the Hiking Trough:
After Paul Stutzman lost his wife to breast cancer, he sensed a tug on his heart--the call to a challenge, the call to pursue a dream. Paul left his stable career, traveled to Georgia, and took his first steps on the Appalachian Trail. What he learned during the next four and a half months changed his life--and will change readers' lives as well.

In Hiking Through, readers will join Paul on his remarkable 2,176-mile hike through fourteen states in search of peace and a renewed sense of purpose, meeting fascinating and funny people along the way. They'll discover that every choice we make along the path has consequences for the journey and will come away with a new understanding of God's grace and guidance. Nature-lovers, armchair adventurers, and those grieving a loss may not be able to hike the AT themselves, but they can go on this spiritual pilgrimage with a truly humble and sympathetic guide

Watch for more details for when we will start back up in the fall.
