Evans Reading Group 

Date(s) - Wednesday, June 26, 2024
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


Organized 17 years ago as the Spirituality Book Group, this Cedars reading group assumed a new identity as the Evans Reading Group in 2020 to honor the Rev. Marvin Evans after his passing.

In our time together, the group has read and discussed more than 60 books selected to intrigue and hopefully enlighten us in seeking “Salvation by Bibliography” as our late friend Marvin used to say, and we are especially pleased to invite your participation with us now in the reading and discussion of a very significant and recently published work by one of our own Cedars members, titled The Gospel According To This Moment: The Spiritual Message Of Henry David Thoreau by the Rev. Barry Andrews (available through Barry, University of Massachusetts Press or Amazon).

Primarily known as a writer, a naturalist, and an advocate of environmental preservation, civil disobedience and simple living, Thoreau’s spirituality was in the woods, not in a church, and primarily had to do with transcendent experiences encountered in the natural world.

Join us for an interesting discussion via Zoom at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26th. If you would like to be on our email list, let Mary Romeo know.
