Book Group News from Shona
Book Group

Most of us really enjoyed The trouble with goats and sheep  by Joanna Canon and liked her style of writing and the symbolism she used. We also liked the bible quotes and her portrayal of life and the burdens many people carry. We gave it 4.5 out of 5. Colour Bar by Susan Williams was also enjoyed but less people had read it. We felt it was a very good book covering the important topic of apartheid and an interesting part of British and African history.

Good Sam7

After the Bible reading, he showed us a clip from

Good Sam6

Luke 10:25-42  The parable of the good Samaritan 25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he asked, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ 26 ‘What is written in the Law?’ he replied. ‘How do you read it?’ 27 He answered, ‘“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind”; and, “Love your neighbour as yourself.”’
