The FLC Library Committee
“The library looks wonderful”, exclaimed one of our FLC members.
Yes, the shelves are attractively arranged, subject area clearly identified, labels easy to read. Welcome to our reorganized Library.
And--the 2016 Show Us Your Summer photographs now are the new décor for the library. Each photograph has an accompanying explanation identifying the photographer, the title, location, and the judges comments. You will be impressed with the talent of our members and friends.
Much more is happening in our library – there is a revised catalog system, and the Christian Century magazine will soon appear on the magazine shelves. Peter Marty, is now the editor of Christian Century.
Look for featured books on the table outside the library. There is a new one you will want to check out to read during Lent: The Last Week; A Day-by-Day Account of Jesus’s Final Week in Jerusalem by Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan. “Using the gospel of Mark as their guide, the story begins on Palm Sunday with two triumphal entries into Jerusalem. The first entry, that of Roman governor Pontius Pilate leading Roman soldiers into the city, symbolized military strength. The second heralded a new kind of moral hero who was praised by the people as he rode in on a humble donkey… The Last Week depicts Jesus giving up his life to protest power without justice and to condemn the rich who lack concern for the poor.”
