We are dancing Sarah’s Circle, sisters, brothers, all.
Here we seek and find our story, sisters, brothers, all.
We will all do our own naming, sisters, brothers, all.
Every round a generation, sisters, brothers, all.
On and on the circle’s moving, sisters, brothers, all.
(to the tune of “We are Climbing Jacob’s Ladder”)
Our next meeting is Saturday, June 17, at 11:00 am. Our Pride Month selection is Stonewall: Breaking Out in the Fight for Gay Rights written by award-winning nonfiction author Ann Bausum. All women are welcome to participate either in person or via Zoom. Please contact Joan Amon to receive the Zoom invitation.
What is Sarah’s Circle?
Sarah’s Circle is a non-denominational women’s only book club to read and discuss books about spirituality, with a focus on feminine spirituality. Our Spiritual Book Club is a little more than the average book club. If you are seeking the support of other women in your spiritual journey or are looking for an interesting and deeper book club to join, then this is the group for you! It is open to all women in the community, not just members of PACC. We’re always delighted to welcome newcomers! And if you’ve been on our list, but haven’t really attended in a while, why don’t you come to see the fun you’re missing!
When does it meet?
Sarah’s Circle was planned as a monthly meeting, in the Fellowship Room at PACC, on a Saturday morning. Due to COVID and some members moving out of state, we have been meeting via Zoom and in person. Our club explores Spirituality through novels, science, philosophy, and theology. If you would like to join the Circle or would like more information, please contact the church office by calling 781-643-8680 or via email.
What topics/books are coming up next?
Sometimes, for more broad subject topics, we choose a single topic to read about, allowing members to choose their own book on that topic. As a “free choice” month – it’s up to you whether you chose to read a large, scholarly tome, or a shorter, more-accessible paperback. We return to everyone reading the same book for more narrow-focused topics. Whenever we choose a topic instead of a specific book, we will also discuss which books address the topic as well as which books might be found in our current book list. So, here is an ongoing list of topics that we would like to pursue; if you have additional suggestions, please bring them to the next meeting!
- Communicating with spirits/angels
- Different Religions (e.g. Hindu, Confucianism, Catholicism, etc.)
- Spiritual People
- Mother Earth/Goddess/Gaia Spirituality and Religions
- Greek Myths
- Native American Spirituality
- Island Culture Spirituality (e.g. Hawaii, Bali, Cambodia)
- Celtic Spirituality
- The Celestine Prophecies
- Expressions of Spirituality via the Arts
- Everyday Spirituality
- Inclusivity/Exclusivity within Groups
- Community Making
