The Symposium book club will meet on Monday, March 20 at Princeton Seminary’s Center for Continuing Education. Dinner will be in the cafeteria in Mackay Campus Center at 6 p.m. with our regular meeting to follow at 7:00 p.m. in Adams House next door to our usual meeting place in Erdman Hall.
The book for this month is Hiding in the Light: Why I Risked Everything to Leave Islam and Follow Jesus by Rifqa Bary. You may recall the news stories in 2009 about Rifqa, aged 16 at the time, who had secretly become a Christian and who had to flee from her family’s death threats when they discovered her conversion. This book in which she describes her faith journey and spiritual warfare in the face of threats and danger will inspire and challenge our own commitment to follow Jesus. John Potter will be the presenter for this meeting.
Nancy Schluter has informed us that her husband Bill, who has served in both houses of the New Jersey state legislature, has published a new book, Soft Corruption: How Unethical Conduct Undermines Good Government and What To Do About It. For those who may be interested there will be a book-signing at Rutgers University Eagleton Institute on Tuesday, March 7 at 3:00 p.m. A flyer is attached. Please note that RSVP is required.
Again we remind you all that we still need volunteers to do the presentations for the following:
04/17/17 The Tongue is Also a Fire
05/15/17 Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness
10/16/17 Signing Their Lives Away
Please consider whether you could lead one of these discussions.
We look forward to seeing you. As always, we welcome visitors and guests. Dinner for first time guests will be paid for out of our treasury.
