Novel (& Reel) Theology 

Literature shapes our understanding of ideas like love, compassion, forgiveness, redemption; in other words, those markers we encounter in following Christ.  This year we will mix novels with movies and occasional non-fiction.  Novel Theology discussions are open to anyone who has read the book or seen the movie.  Invite your friends.  Books are available at Morgan Hill Bookstore at a 15% discount.

We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 7 pm.
