     I am really enjoying our Book Discussion Group that meets on the second Wednesday of the month at Noon.  Last month's discussion of The Poisonwood Bible will be one that certainly stay with me!  This month, we are reading Tuesday's with Morrie, a biographical account written by Mitch Albom of the final part of a beloved college professor Morrie Schwartz's life.
      One of the lessons Morrie tries to impart to Mitch is the importance of being part of things that are bigger than you.  What a powerful lesson to grasp!  For me the book comes down to this quote:  "The way to get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devot yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning"
       Ponder those words.  Hopefully, you know people who are the epitome of these words.  How wonderful our small space could be if we were all people who lived up to these words.
       Do you have thoughts about this you would like to share?  Then join us on April 8th at Noon and let's talk about it.  I look forward to seeing you then!
