So, how about a Covenant Book Club?!?
The first book I’ve selected is “The Bluest Eye,” by the late Toni Morrison.
The story is about a young girl growing up in Ohio following the Depression. The is constantly told she is “ugly” and she believes the misinformation. She equates blue eyes with beauty, which is associated with “whiteness.” It is a provocative book which deals with issues of racism and child abuse. As much as we find these issues disgusting, they are part of our human condition. They are part of the world in which we live and part of the lives of God’s broken people who need the comfort of Jesus.
Because the book was first released in 2007, it should be readily available at your library. It is also available in print and Kindle versions. There is also an audible edition. Please decide what format you want to read and start reading!
Dates and times of book club gatherings, at least for now, will be as listed. We can adjust based on interest. We will begin in November.
