Wayfarers Reading Club

The Wayfarers are long-standing reading groups at Ste-Geneviève United Church. There are two groups: one meeting on Mondays at 11 am and one meeting on Wednesday nights at 7 pm.

A wayfarer is someone who travels on foot. This a good analogy for the pace of the groups: we gather, we talk about current events, we read together and discuss the books as the Spirit moves us, in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. No need to read ahead or come prepared in anyway. We travel all together, walking through the book with no specific deadline.

The topics vary from current events to inspirational books, to theology and Biblical scholarship. The participants choose the books together.

One can join a group at any point, but the start of a new book is usually a good opportunity to join.

The Monday group (which has been on zoom for the last year) is going to gather back in person to start a new book on June 13. When the weather is good, the group will meet outside, around a picnic table. Otherwise, they will meet in the choir room. At that date, the Monday group will start reading Fly While You Still Have Wings by Joyce Rupp.

The Wednesday group is currently going through the series of books Joshua by Joseph F. Girzone and is currently meeting in the church’s choir room
