A runner will get your name and bring your order to your car and you will exit right back out the driveway.   We are also offering a pickup time on Friday morning from 11 a.m. to 12 noon.

We look forward to seeing you!

Book Discussion of Caste on August 24

Prompted by a desire, as Christians, to continue our learning and discussion of issues of race and reconciliation, we have selected the book Caste:  The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson, to discuss as a group on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 at 7 p.m.   We will provide details at a later time about whether the discussion will be in person or by Zoom, or both.

Caste describes racism in the United States as an aspect of a caste system – a society-wide system of social stratification characterized by notions such as hierarchy, inclusion and exclusion, and purity. Wilkerson does so by comparing aspects of the experience of American people of color to the caste systems of India and Nazi Germany, and she explores the impact of caste on societies shaped by them, and their people. 

Caste has been included in several lists of best books of 2020, including the Washington Post, Time, and NPR.  The New York Times described the book as “an instant American classic and almost certainly the keynote nonfiction book of the American century thus far.” To hear Wilkerson talk about this book, click here or here.
