Date: Monday, July 7, 2008 - 10:30am - 11:30am

Looking For Salvation at Dairy Queen by Susan Gregg Gilmore
Every Saturday, Catherine sits at the Dairy Queen, plotting her getaway to Atlanta. When the dream becomes a reality, she immediately leaves everything to claim the life she’s always imagined. But before things have even begun to get off the ground in Atlanta, tragedy brings Catherine Grace back home. As a series of extraordinary events alter her perspective–and sweeping changes come to Ringgold itself–she begins to wonder if her place in the world may actually be, against all odds, right where she began.

Gurley Girls: The Third Jesus

Location: Gurley Public Library
Date: Monday, August 4, 2008 - 10:30am - 11:30am

The Third Jesus by Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra provides an answer to this question that is both a challenge to current systems of belief and a fresh perspective on what Jesus can teach us all, regardless of our religious background. There is not one Jesus, Chopra writes, but three: the historical Jesus, the Son of God, and the cosmic Christ, the spiritual guide whose teaching embraces all humanity, not just the church built in his name. He speaks to the individual who wants to find God as a personal experience, to attain what some might call grace, or God-consciousness, or enlightenment.

Gurley Girls: The Faith Club

Location: Gurley Public Library
Date: Monday, September 8, 2008 - 10:30am - 11:30am

The Faith Club by Ranya Idliby
Three women -- a Jew, a Christian, and a Muslim -- came together to write a book about their religious traditions, but realized they had differences to sort through first. Over time, the three women began to call their group a 'faith club,' and, as a result, each discovered stronger faith in their religions than they'd had before. An honest, unflinching look at stereotypes, misconceptions, and the power of faith.
