I am so blessed to be a part of a group of guys who hang out once a week. We call ourselves the Brown Bag Mens Book Club. Really, all we are is a group of men older than young and younger than old that meet in Jim’s lunch room and talk about what we are reading and life. We eat leftovers, fastfood, or crackers. We have shared books from A.W. Tozer, Brian McClaren, Philip Yancey, Dallas Willard and others. Some that our friend Jim brings are way too brainy and scientific for me to grasp or remember the titles. A cool book today was a book Andy brought that contained stories that Ronald Reagan had handwritten throughout his life.
All I can say is, “thanks guys!” I have had support, life coaching, friendship and bad jokes to look forward to each week. God can speak through community in powerful ways.
If you have a similar group, I would love to hear about it. If not, I suggest starting your own thing like this. What are you reading these day? How is it changing and challenging you?
