Summer Redeemer Reads

Summer Redeemer Reads

For the past several years, the Redeemer community has read books about our changing life as church.  This year, Learning@Redeemer is proposing something different.  Our summer reading group will explore how Christianity has been presented to children in three fiction books from different decades of the twentieth century.

Book Jacket - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe     Book Jacket - Are You There, God?  It's Me, Margaret.     Book Jacket - The Golden Compass

We will read selections from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Are You there God, It’s me Margaret by Judy Blume and The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman.  Our objective is to look at the different and sometimes opposing perspectives on the life of faith which these stories offer and to explore the implications for our spiritual formation and growth as a multi-generational community.  These books are widely available in a variety of formats, so it should be easy to find a copy at your favourite bookstore.

Plan to join Noel Solorzano and Cherith Muir for a small group discussion of the themes explored in these three books on Tuesdays, June 16, 30, July 14, 28, and August 11, 25 from 6 - 8:30 PM.  Please register online or by calling the church office at 416-922-4948.
