One Book One Church Discussion

November 18

Description

Wednesdays at 2:00 pm 

The Intentional Faith Development and Inclusivity Committees, along with the Strangers as Neighbors study group, invites you to join us for another One Book, One Church read and discuss event. The IFD committee selected My (Underground) American Dream, by Julissa Arce, as a follow-up to the Just Like Us book we discussed in October.   

We will hold Zoom discussions on Wednesdays at 2:00 pm. Trudy Gygi and Cheryl Runyon will lead the book discussion.

Julissa Arce, a vice president at Goldman Sachs on Wall Street, also is an undocumented immigrant who shares her life experiences with us.

Mountain View wants to involve our upper elementary, middle- and high-school students in our reading program. Arce has written another book, Someone Like Me, which shares her story with younger readers. Arce has developed reading guides that can help parents discuss this book with their children.

Thank you and we look forward to sharing your thoughts and perspectives about immigration, DREAMERS, and the United Methodist perspective on these issues.
