As we enter into the heat of the summer, I want to give you a few of my favorite book recommendations. They are listed in no particular order, although I am certain that you will find each of these books enjoyable for a variety of reasons. Although I am not going to give a description of each book, if you would like to know more, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at the church office or by email. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
