The Western New York community is invited to join the winter and/or spring book clubs featuring books No. 3 and No. 4 in the “Sensible Shoes Series” by author Sharon Garlough Brown.
Part of the devotion-by-distance online retreat programming offered by the Center of Renewal Retreat & Conference Center at Stella Niagara, the book clubs will each meet six consecutive Tuesdays from 1:30-2:30 p.m. with winter book club from March 8 through April 12, and spring book club from April 26 to May 31. Most participants will attend the book club sessions via online Zoom since those attending in person at the retreat center must have proof of having been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus and agree to other on-site and masking protocols.
Organizers said, “Even for those who have not yet read the first two books in the series, each book can also stand independently, so feel free to join in now for an enjoyable hour-a-week with others on these books based on four women going through their respective and unique spiritual formation journeys.”
The winter book club will feature book No. 3, “Barefoot: A Story of Surrendering to God,” by author Sharon Garlough Brown, with book No. 4, “An Extra Mile: A Story of Embracing God’s Call” for the spring book club.
Participants are urged to acquire books from area booksellers. Advance registration for the book club is required at least two days prior to the start of each book club. To register or for more information, call the Center of Renewal at 716-754-7376, Ext. 2 or 1, and visit the website, www.stellaniagararetreats.org.
The Center of Renewal Retreat & Conference Center at Stella Niagara is sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, Holy Name Province.
