Dinner and a Movie, 10/20—The Maclean family drew no clear line between religion and fly fishing. Rev. Maclean taught his sons to fish and look for grace.

Sign up in the parlor or email Dan at email@example.com by Wednesday, 10/18.

Waking Up White, 10/29—BEGIN READING! We’ll gather after worship to discuss Debbie Irving’s excellent memoir about race. In her words: “This is the book I wish someone had handed me decades ago.
