St. James Book Club
Unanimous, gushing praise for The Stone Angel, a classic Canadian novel by Margaret Laurence. Hagar Shipley, a proud, stubborn, cantankerous 90-year-old recalls her life, trying to understand her mistakes and misjudgments. With her father and brothers, her husband and sons, she has struggled to give and receive love. Like the stone angel of the title, she has been blind and the scales fall away very slowly. An extraordinary account of a life, marked by superb prose and stunning imagery, this is a masterpiece by one of Canada's greatest writers.

In order to finish the year with a balanced budget, the Stewards are asking congregation members to consider increasing your giving by 15 to 20 percent for the remaining weeks of the year. (If your weekly giving is $10, for example, that would mean increasing to $11.50 or $12.00.) If you have any questions, please contact Anne Laybolt.
