Book Club Report

We finally met on last Wednesday at Deb’s house after postponing several times! No snow this night. The jinx is broken and we promise there will be no more snow. ;-)

We enjoyed yummy “Cafe Rio” for dinner. Thanks to Deb and Devon and all who contributed.

Cindy lead the discussion on The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. The author took us on a thrilling chase around Washington DC in order to explore the ins-and-outs of Masonry and the science of Noetics with his favorite character, John Langdon, and friends. It had plenty of twists and turns and some truths we already knew. One or two quotes will illustrate...
The only difference between you and God is that you have forgotten you are divine. (p. 492)

I've learned never to close my mind to an idea simply because it seem miraculous. (p 211)

Truth has power. And if we all gravitate toward similar ideas, maybe we do so because those ideas are true...written deep within us. And when we hear the truth, even if we don't understand it we feel that truth resonate within us...vibrating with our unconscious wisdom. Perhaps the truth is not learned by us, but rather the truth is that which is already inside us. (p. 409)
Thanks to everyone for a successful Relief Society Meeting.


(Apologies for the quality of my phone camera photos. These ladies are all lovely and not grainy, I promise.)
