Library News and Book Review Feb. 20, 2018
By Sylvia Willard
This Sunday is Library Sunday, so there will be a volunteer in the library from 10:00 until 10:25 and again after the service until 12:00 to help you find books and answer questions. This is the first Library News article in three months because I was in New York for that time. This week three books were added to the collection. They are: The New Atheism: Taking a Stand for Science and Reason by Victor J. Stenger, One Plastic Bag: Jsatou Ceesay and the Recycling Women of the Gambia by Miranda Paul (children ‘ s book), and Spiritual Adventures in the Snow: Skiing and Snowboarding as Renewal for Your Soul by Dr. Marcia McFee and co-authored by our own Rev. Karen Foster. This is the title which is being reviewed. Kristin Krone, former Olympic skier, said, “[This book] explains the phenomena of a lifestyle in snow. . .the tranquility and peacefulness, the exhilaration and treacherousness. . .[the] magical, spiritual connection that ties us to the mountains, the wonder that propels us through the snow and through our lives.
Susan Saint Sing, author of Spirituality of Sport: Balancing Body and Soul, said “Spiritual fun is what we should be about in our daily lives. Playing at the feet of God, as children of God, as created beings, is our heritage and our inheritance. Hooray for Spiritual Adventures in the Snow!
The Fellowship Library is self-serve. Books check out for four weeks. Anytime you are in the building you are welcome to go in and borrow books. Print your name on the check out card and include the date and your phone number. Place the cards in the green plastic box on top of the low shelving. When you return the books, just put them on the shelf below the check out box. A library volunteer will pull the cards and shelve the books.
Please remember you can search the library collection anytime you are online and visit the www.uufnn.org website.
