Community Fostered Through Student Book Club

An inaugural book club for seminary students and spouses is well underway this semester at RTS Jackson. Although it may seem as though seminarians already have plenty to read, they won't find Vos, Calvin, or Macleod here. Instead, the club aims at fostering pleasure and learning through reading of a different sort - each month the group alternates between fiction and non-fiction books which have included Jason Roberts' The Blind Traveler, C.S. Lewis' Till We Have Faces, and the Delany sisters' Having Our Say.

The club began through conversations among founding members Justin Jones-Fosu, Ashley Williams, Rachael Garner, and Charlie Wingard and its first meeting was opened to the campus in January 2016. Dean of Students Charlie Wingard and his wife, Lynne, host and provide dinner for the meetings out of their campus townhome.
