Book Club meets August 17

Our Book Club meets on Zoom the 3rd Monday of each month at 6:30 PM.

On August 17 Sally will lead a discussion on Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan.

The book is a historical fiction about an improbable love story between Joy Davidman, a Bronx native, and C.S. Lewis, a Christian author. It describes her thirst for knowledge of God and the struggles of women trying to break through a man's literary world in the 1950's, and ultimately finding the love she craved.

Other books coming up:

September 21: The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon, dscussion led by Diane O. Takes place in England 1976. Publishers Weekly: "An astute, engaging debut." It is a quirky and utterly charming tale of a community in need of reconciliation and two girls learning what it means to belong.

October 19: A Trail of Light by Sarita Eastman. Discussion led by Elizabeth Eade. A biography of Dr Anita Figueredo who was a pioneering surgeon in Ja Jolla at Scripps Hospital and whose husband was Dr William Doyle, 1964 Chief of Staff.

November 16: book TBD. Discussion led by Gudrun A.

Anyone can join us on any of these dates and if you wish to be included in the book club emails please contact Sally at

About La Jolla Lutheran Church

Improve your life. Learn about Jesus and discover what the Bible says.

Pastor Mark's messages will give you something to think about each week. His clear teaching on the Bible will help you apply it to your life.

Our mission statement is simple: We follow Jesus. When you arrive, you'll find kids, parents, and grandparents, all worshiping together in one extended family.

The church building is closed because of the coronavirus. Once public worship resumes, our worship service will be at 9:30 a.m. From September through June, kids are invited to be in the worship service for part of the time with us and then to go to Sunday School after the children's message. In July and August, kids are part of the whole worship experience. (A nursery is provided for kids under three.) Worship is followed by coffee at 10:45 and Bible Study at 11:05.

Pastor Mark is the author of How to Pray for Healing (and what to do if nothing happens).
