A Book Discussion

 Pastor Bob recently read the book,The Anatomy of Peace. He feels that its message is extremely important for our day and that it is not only the best book written on the topic, but that it’s also very well written.

“Thankfully, it’s not a college textbook and it’s not political. It’s simply real, really accessible, and a joy to read!”


He will facilitate a 4-week book discussion to be held on Wednesdays from 10:30 AM to 12:00 Noon in the Moultonborough Public Library. Books will be available from the library. Otherwise, they may be ordered in paper or as e-books from Amazon.

Background:
Very few people actually want to be in conflict! Yet, conflicts are inevitable. We each have differing wants, desires, and ways that we would prefer things to be. This opens the door to conflict. The challenge, then, is how to handle conflict in a peaceful and constructive way that maintains and even strengthens the relationship.

Through a moving story of parents struggling with conflicts with their own children, we learn the way to transform our thinking and  approach to personal, professional, and even global conflicts. This is not a recipe book, but a discussion about the way we humans are and how we can be. It’s a book that offers hope where we need it most.

Come to discuss, come to share, come to learn, and come to meet someone new.
