Book Study on German Mystic To Begin Friday This Friday, February 20, a new book study is being offered to anyone interested. It is a continuation of the study of a long series of books by ancient Christian authors and mystics that Bill Shields has led, and others in the community have attended, for years. The group, nebulous because of its changing mem- bership, has been known as the "Cloudy" group, not only because it began with the book "The Cloud of Unknow- ing" many years ago, but be- cause it deals with pretty "flufl material. Its members enjoy examining how Chris- tians in earlier times viewed their God, and learn a bit of history also, through read- ing, discussion and sharing of experiences. The book chosen this year is about Gertrude ofHelfta, a 15th Century German Benedictine nun who wrote between the Great Schism of the late 14th century and the Reformation in the 16th cen- tury. St. Gertrude of Helfta (Gertrude the Great) writes about a compassionate GOd who calls all people to Him through the universal love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The group will be meeting on Fridays at 10:00 a.m. in the Faith Room next to the sanctuary at the Presbyte- rian Church in Halfway.
