JUNE SELECTION
 


"Dimestore: A Writer's Life" by Lee Smith

"Go Set A Watchman" by Harper Lee

The highly controversial publication of Harper Lee’s first novel written several years before her American Masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird, created a firestorm of emotions about whether her earlier attempt to call the American conscience to watchfulness regarding the civil rights issues engulfing The United States in the 1950s should or should not have been published. Does Go Set A Watchman add insights into the realities of the times? Come join our discussion!

KIRKIN' OF THE TARTAN
HERITAGE SUNDAY - OCTOBER
 
On Heritage Sunday, we celebrate our Presbyterian heritage! Worship begins with a procession of bagpipers, choirs, and *tartans. All choirs provide musical leadership through the singing of hymns and anthems, accompanied by guest instrumentalists.

*A bit of history about this custom . . .

The Kirkin' of The Tartan has its origins in the eighteenth century. After Scottish patriots were defeated at the battle of Culloden in 1745, the British Parliament passed the Parliamentary Act of 1746 which banned the kilt and every other tartan garment in an effort to destroy Highland Clan identity. Not easily deterred defiant Scots secretly carried remnants of their tartans to church. The ministers would then add a blessing into the service for the tartans and the clans they represented.
