Women's Book Study
it's not too late to attend a morning of coffee (or juice), treats, and great conversation after reading Take This Bread: A Radical Conversion by Sara Miles. Sara’s work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, The Progressive, La Jornada, and Salon, among others. She has written extensively on military affairs, politics, and culture. Raised as an atheist, Sara Miles lived an enthusiastically secular life as a restaurant cook and a writer. Then early one winter morning, for no earthly reason, she wandered into a church. "I was certainly not interested in becoming a Christian," she writes, "or, as I thought of it rather less politely, a religious nut." But she ate a piece of bread, took a sip of wine, and found herself radically transformed. The mysterious sacrament of communion has sustained Miles ever since, in a faith she’d scorned, in work she’d never imagined. In this astonishing story, she tells how the seeds of her conversion were sown, and what her life has been like since she took that bread.
The class meets on Saturday mornings October 8, 22, November 12 and 26 from 8:00-9:30am in the Student Lounge and will be facilitated by Eldonna Hazen. Please let Eldonna know if you plan to attend, and if you need a copy of the book.
