book group - top 5

 the book was chosen to be a quick read during the busy holiday season, and to focus us on what's important.  anne lamott's help thanks wow categorizes prayer.  

here are my top 5 from book group:
5.  you don't have to read the book to go.  you don't even have to know the title to attend and enjoy.  
4.  the author is completely non-denominational.  prayer is universal.
3.  the range of topics during the meeting, from commercials to our children's summer schedules
2.  learning about other compelling books members are reading
1.  a quote from the book:

The great Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote, "I slept and dreamt that life was joy. / I 

awoke and saw that life was service. / I acted and behold, service was joy."

  1. This is such a beautiful post, Noreen. I'm (this will sound SO weird) struggling with an invitation I've received to a book group and need to decide how to handle it. You make it sound good and right and lovely, and oh, how I wish it were so! XO
