Book Club

For September we will be reading two books, “The Builder, The Life of Peter Henning, 1868-1958” and “The Son” (about Peter Henning, Jr.).  Both books were written by David Buerge and edited by Peter Henning, Jr.  For those of you new to the community, the Hennings have been active in our community for years.  They started the farm near Island Crossing now owned by the Sinnema’s where they sell raw milk. They also owned the Henning Farm on the Norman Road where Cliff & Helen Henning farmed followed by their son Cliff William Henning.  They were members here at Peace.

“The Builder” follows the adventures of Peter Henning, Sr which moves from Sweden to the Mid-West, Stanwood, Alaska and clear down to New Mexico.  “The Son” continues the Henning legacy with the life of his son.

Carol Maurstad, also related to the Henning clan,  has graciously located several copies of these books for us to use.  If you would like a copy to read please contact Becky in the office or Mary Fuentes.

Book club will be meeting on September 28th at 6 pm in the church and via zoom.

October Book Club selection:  The Apple Orchard, Susan Wiggs

This is the third book we have read from this local author.

The Apple Orchard is the story of family ties– both old and new and the moments that connect our hearts.

Against the rich landscape of Bella Vista, Tess begins to discover a world filled with the simple pleasures of food and family, of the warm earth beneath her bare feet. A world where family comes first and the roots of history run deep. A place where falling in love is not only possible, but inevitable.

And in a season filled with new experiences, Tess begins to see the truth in something Annelise once told her: if you don’t believe memories are worth more than money, then perhaps you’ve not made the right kind of memories.

Please join us on October 26th, 6pm, in the fellowship hall or on Zoom.
