Trinity Book Club

The Trinity Book Club meets after the 10:00 Sunday service (approximately at noon) to discuss books of interest while enjoying fellowship over a potluck lunch. All are welcome—even if you have not finished reading the book!

On June 3, our selection will be Jodi Picoult’s book Small Great Things. Ruth, a Black nurse, is forbidden from treating the baby of white supremacists. When the baby goes into cardiac arrest, Ruth hesitates before giving the baby CPR, leading to a devastating outcome, and a legal battle against the baby’s parents. The novel explores not only overt racism, but the more subtle ways prejudice shapes relationships and our worldview.
