The Holy Cross Book Club begins reading Salvation on Sand Mountain by Dennis Covington.  This book introduces us to Appalachian snake handling churches.  I don't think any of us wants to start snake handling at Holy Cross!  Rather, reading respectfully about about these Christians opens up discussions about what it means to worship, to understand the Bible, and to be strangers in a strange land (1 Peter 2:11-12; Hebrews 11:13).  We'll meet once a month to discuss a book in person.  In the meantime, questions, thoughts, and nominations for the next book can all be posted in this space.
