Beginning Valentine’s Day, Pond Home residents and friends will be participating in a Lent Observance Book Club. Each Tuesday of Lent the group will meet at 10 a.m. in the living room of Pond Home to read and discuss a chapter from Max Lucado’s book And the Angels Were Silent. The book follows Jesus during the last week of his life, relating the story using modern events or people to draw a parallel between contemporary occurrences and Jesus’ last week. The group will be led by volunteer Susan Stravinski, a Certified Nondenominational Christian Minister and Registered Nurse who maintains the post of Staff Educator at Pond Home. “Participation from the general public is welcome as it should enhance the discussion,” said Stravinski, noting that she “looks forward to discussing the book and the topics it will raise with the residents at Pond Home.”
The book club is free and open to the public. Meeting dates are slated each Tuesday of Lent at 10 a.m. February 14th, 21st, 28th, March 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, and April 3rd. Call (508)384-3531 ext. 221 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register if you would like to attend.
