The Quaker Book Group meets monthly via Zoom on the second Saturday, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. In July, it meets on July 9 to discuss The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. (Note: This book can be accessed electronically for free from the Gutenberg Project)
Originally published in 1923 by a Lebanese author (child of Maronite Christian parents), The Prophet is an inspirational classic presenting prose poem reflections on 26 topics such as friendship, pain, love, children, religion, and death. Newcomers are always welcome, even if you have not read the book. We read a mix of books by Quakers, books about Quakerism, and books that speak to Quaker values and concerns. The group is invited to share announcements, summaries, and thoughts about the readings through an online mailing list.
