Tea & Christianity Reading Group: Do you question whether God really can speak to your life today? Where does faith intersect with our modern life? And how can I connect with others who have similar questions while enjoying a refreshing beverage? Find answers together as we explore various famous spiritual teachings throughout Christianity. We welcome all and provide the necessary resources.
Where: Origin Coffee and Tea 2168 Sunset Boulevard, 105, Rocklin, CA 95675. Origin Coffee is a non-profit coffee shop resolved to end human sex-trafficking. (This meetup has no affiliation with Origin Coffee & Tea, but we proudly support their work.)

Upcoming Book: "With Pain and Love for Contemporary Man" by Elder Paisios of Mount Athos. Chapter themes and sub-themes include:
• Sin and the Devil - It is Fashionable to Sin - The Secular Spirit
• Modern Civilization - In the Era of Comforts There Is So Much Discomfort - Simplify Your Life to Avoid Anxiety
• The Spirit of God and the Spirit of the World - Rationalism in Our Times
• The Church in Our Times - Education
Each person in the group takes turns reading a section of the book out loud while the rest of the group listens--allowing for comments and questions at the end. This group makes reading a shared experience and frees the busy members from the "homework" of having to read the book before coming to the group. We create a refreshing environment for commenting on the specifics of various Christian spiritual insights.
We look forward to meeting you!
Goodreads.com - 4.67 out of 5 Stars "Words of wisdom and down to earth advice to face our life and problems of our time with love, kindness and faith. Very helpful." - Katerina - 5 out of 5 Stars
Amazon.com - 4.30 out of 5 Stars "A phenomenal spiritual guide, Elder Paisios is sweet, simple, charming, clear in thought, funny and loving. This entire series of books is wonderful. In a question and answer format, it is easy to pick up and read at any time. My college age children have loved them as well and these books have helped bring my children peace while navigating college life. Volume 4 (recently translated into English) will be under the Christmas tree for them this year!" - Pamela F. on November 22, 2013
I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
