Our current book is Disunity in Christ: Uncovering the Hidden Forces that Keep Us Apart by Christena Cleveland. Despite Jesus’ prayer that all Christians “be one,” divisions have been epidemic in the body of Christ from the beginning to the present. We cluster in theological groups, gender groups, age groups, ethnic groups, educational and economic groups. We criticize freely those who disagree with us, don’t look like us, don’t act like us and even those who don’t like what we like. Though we may think we know why this happens, Christena Cleveland says we probably don’t. In this eye-opening book, learn the hidden reasons behind conflict and divisions.

Please note: At our meeting last month, I announced that Thirst by Mary Oliver, would be our next book, but I have rearranged the schedule. We will read Thirst for our meeting December 1.

Keep GNM in your prayers as they continue to grow, serve, and build the African refugee community of faith in Albuquerque.

Blessings in Christ,
