I need to say more about 'The Faith Club'. Only three people came to discuss the book last night. We felt a little like the three women who wrote the book as we contemplated the shared attributes of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam... One God and three religious approaches to the worship and understanding of that one God.
There were so many beautiful quotes included in the book. This is from Mother Teresa:
The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.
The entire book caused us to ponder 'the big questions' of life. It is one of those that can't be described easily, and is worth reading more than once.
