    September’s book choice is The Underground Railroad, (Oprah’s Book Club): a novel, by Colson Whitehead.
    Cora’s story set around the year 1812 follows her harrowing plight as a young slave in Georgia and her escape. The Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor-engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora and Caesar’s first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But the city’s placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. And even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher, is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom. The Underground Railroad is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman’s ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.

    Café 9:15
    Sunday Mornings Between Services

    Café 9:15 is weekly between-the-services discussion group - a  place where parishioners  gather over coffee and pastries to discuss the morning’s lessons.  We try to look at the scripture in its historical context, search for its message for our day-to-day lives, and ask where it is leading us as we grow in faithfulness to the Gospel’s message.  We are a diverse group, with different perspectives—the more the merrier--so anyone is welcome, any time.   This is a good way to prepare yourself to hear the sermon at 10:15, or to reflect on what you heard at the 8:00 service.  It is also a great way to get to know some of the people of St. Andrew’s.
