2017 Winter Book Study

Our title for winter 2017 is "Sapiens: A brief History of Humankind."
by Yuval Noah Harari.

For over twenty-five years, between January and May of each year, on alternating Friday evenings, a group of enthusiastic learners has gathered in the lounge of West Hill United Church to uncover the kernels of wisdom found in that year's chosen book.  Because each book has had a provocative edge to it, the Book Study Group has been the crucible within which much of the theological shift that the congregation has seen over those twenty years has taken place.

 Participants are not always West Hill congregants and the Book Study is always open to new voices who are interested in respectfully engaging the many ways we are challenged to live radically ethical lives. Please do join us for an intriguing and animated discussion.  The book study takes place in the lounge at West Hill at 7:30 on alternating Fridays.  You don't need to have come to the first to still join us.  You can pop in mid-way through.  

Given the depth, complexity and richness of the chapters, and our limited time together, some may wish to continue conversations,  so we invite anyone interested in respectfully offering thoughts to engage with fellow readers.  We hope to post our facilitation questions and let you take it from there. Visit our blog HERE!
