"The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz - Rooted in traditional Toltec wisdom beliefs, this book has inspired many people of varied faiths and backgrounds. Don Miguel Ruiz gives four principles to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. Adopting and committing to these agreements is simple. Actually living and keeping these Four Agreements can be one of the hardest things you will ever do. It can also be one of the most life changing things you will ever do.
Blending personal narrative and investigative journalism, Jayaraman shows us that the quality of the food that arrives at our restaurant tables depends not only on the sourcing of the ingredients. Our meals benefit from the attention and skill of the people who chop, grill, sauté, and serve. Behind the Kitchen Door is a groundbreaking exploration of the political, economic, and moral implications of dining out.

Do you want to go deeper into your humanist faith?
Are you interested in bringing reason and reverence into religion?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, join us for a four-week book discussion group as we read through "Reason and Reverence: Religious Humanism for the 21st Century" by William R. Murry. Led by Rev. Pam Wat and Marian Kester this group will explore the history, theological challenges, future and meaning of religious humanism. Together we will encounter Murry's vision of religious humanism--one that evokes compassion, spirituality and a language of reverence-while grounded in reason, community, social responsibility, science and ethics.
Books are available for purchase for $18 each during church office hours (Tues, Wed, Thurs) and from Rev. Pam after services. The series begins on Wednesday, October 16th.
