BOOK CORNER
Surprised by Oxford: A Memoir by Carolyn Weber
     The University of Oxford is one of the most prestigious, as well as one of the oldest, universities in the world.  It is made up of 38 colleges with undergraduate and graduate level studies available in multiple subject areas.  The chance to study there would be a dream come true for many academics.  Carolyn Weber had that chance and writes eloquently about it in this memoir.
     The author describes the traditions unique to Oxford, the friendships formed there, and the struggle to overcome her broken family background.  Though she was raised outside of the church and is semi-engaged to an avowed atheist, she begins to sense a need for more meaning in her life.  Slowly, throughout her first year in Oxford, she comes face to face with God.
    This memoir was full of literary references, as the author was studying romantic literature, but it is also a sweet journey to faith.  If memoirs are what you like to read, I recommend this one.

USE OF CHURCH PROPERTY
If you borrow tables or chairs from the church, remember, please make your request through the Fellowship Committee call the office at 412 751-8479.

SCHEDULING EVENTS
If you/committee are planning to have a meeting, PLEASE schedule your meeting through the office.  Knowing the date, time and number of expected attendees helps to be certain that the space is available and who is responsible for the group.

CONGREGATIONAL FORUM
If you are interested in contributing to the Newsletter with an article for publication please submit your notes to the office.  Since this is a “forum”, there might be some give and take if folks are interested.  Also, good Christian book reports are greatly welcomed.  The deadline is the 15th of the month except for December when it is the 10th.

MOVING/AWAY/ADDRESS CHANGES
Please notify the office if you are moving or will be temporarily away so records can be kept updated and mail is delivered in a timely fashion.  Also, returned mail has a cost to the church.

REMINDERS
Even though you may be on vacation – the church is not.  We still must pay utilities, insurance and etc.  Food Bank items may be deposited in the box in the Narthex or at the lower parking lot entrance.  Paper products are especially welcome.  Continue to visit the Abitibi bin with your recyclable papers.
