About this Group
Leader(s): Dr. James Furr
Book Study on You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit
Wednesdays at 6:30PM, Weekly
We will read and discuss the book You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit by James K. A. Smith (https://jameskasmith.com), Professor of Philosophy at Calvin University. Smith contends that our deepest desires, or loves, give shape and direction to our lives and that those passions are cultivated intentionally or unintentionally by our daily routines. His book is easy to read and profound at the same time.
We’ll read and discuss the book during the 8-week Wonderful Wednesday term as follows:
September 28—Chapter 1
October 5—Chapter 2
October 12—Chapter 3
October 19—Chapter 4
October 26—Chapter 5
