This summer might be a good time to read a book and join a discussion! All readers are invited to join our conversation about God’s Hotel – A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine on Monday, August 6, at 7:00 p.m. at the church. The book is a memoir written by Victoria Sweet and published in 2012. Amidst a collection of moving stories of patients for whom she has cared, Dr. Sweet recounts her explorations of the classical and Christian roots of healing practices, noting the ways we have subsequently deepened or diverged from those roots. She offers insightful ways to think about health, as well as suggestions about how we might improve our experiences of health care today.
Oliver Sacks described this as “a most important book, which raises fundamental questions about the nature of medicine in our time. It should be required reading.” April Herron will facilitate the discussion.
