701 - Living the Questions
Our group believes that Living the Questions means vigorous discussion of compelling books. Topics have included theology, economics, science, history, and politics.

We are friends who volunteer and look out for one another. This winter we plan to read, Grateful: The Subversive Practice of Giving Thanks by Diana Butler Bass. We discuss spirituality, talk about current issues, collect new socks for folks in need, and items for the Edmonds Food Bank. The members of this group take turns leading the study sessions, offering devotions, and providing a simple treat like cookies or cupcakes. We support each other by sharing joys, concerns, and prayer requests. Newcomers are welcome.
