Reading Group - Summer 2024

Mansfield Park Reading Group

You know Jane Austen as one of the world's most beloved novelists, a sharp-eyed satirist of social follies, and a writer of iconic romances. You might not know her as a faithful, thoughtful Christian. Join us this summer in reading Mansfield Park, Austen's most religious novel, and learning from her Christian wisdom on wealth, poverty, sexuality, superficiality, deception, people-pleasing, novelty-chasing, education, parenting, how to choose a job or a spouse, how to stick to your principles when everyone hates you for it, and more. 

We'll meet eight times on Thursday evenings 7:30-8:30 pm from June 6 to August 1, skipping the Fourth of July

Lead by Kathryn Wagner
Location: CCS House
Thursdays, 7:30-8:30 pm
