Hello Ladies. I made a vlog (with the help of Leo, this is as real as it gets) to introduce our next book club book, The Imitation of Christ . I think we could easily discuss this book through December which is good for a couple of reasons:
1) We can take our time to read, share and discuss because this book is rich and deep and full of little nuggets meant to be savored. (Are you suddenly craving chocolate?)
2) I don’t know about you all, but I am starting to think about Christmas and using one book for a couple of months sounds pretty economical to me.
Ok, while you were trying to hear me over Leo (sorry about that, but I was running out of time to make this and was not going to redo just becasue of a noisy baby), I just looked through my table of contents and it looks like the book is divided into 4 Books. So lets plan on reading one book a month:
September–I. Admonitions Useful for a Spiritual Life
October–II. Admonitions Concerning the Interior Life
November–III. Concerning the Holy Communion
December–IV. Of Interior Consolation
I’ll meet you all here each Wednesday to discuss The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a’Kempis.
By the way, does anyone know the legend concerning Thomas a’Kempis’ death? It’s pretty interesting!
