ADOS, Being Christian: Baptism Bible Eucharist Prayer, Better Than Before, Blue Heaven, book clubs, Gretchen Ruben, Jack Canfield, Louisa May Alcott illuminated by The Message, Rowan Williams, Susan Bailey, The Success Principles
I have admitted more than once to being just a tad ADOS (Attention Deficit — OH, Shiny!). As a perfect example, I am currently participating in not one, not two, but THREE book clubs, with subjects all over the place.
Our Lenten Book Study is former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams’ Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer. I won’t be able to attend every session, thanks to a somewhat crazy schedule, but I am already finding it very thought-provoking.
Our Close To My Heart group is reading and discussing Jack Canfield’s The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. As I shared earlier, I have always found positive affirmations to be a bit contrived and stiff, but I am beginning to see them in a different light thanks to this book. My biggest problem here is that I have a hard time waiting for everyone else, and want to just keep reading on ahead. And then I have to go back and re-read the chapters that are our current assignment.
Better Than Before, by Gretchen Ruben, is the selection for our Simple Scrapper book club, and I’m behind in the reading for this one. (I’ll catch up tonight after work.)
Of course, these aren’t all I have on my plate right now. I am also enjoying Louisa May Alcott, illuminated by The Message, compiled and introduced by Susan Bailey (the wonderful writer who blogs at Louisa May Alcott is My Passion. And I have just given up on C.J. Box’s Blue Heaven, acknowledging that I really don’t like thrillers/murder mysteries that are too gruesome (and this one is, at least for me).
