“Introduction to the Book of Job“
On the above date in March we shall take up GKC’s essay “Introduction to the Book of Job”. It has been re-printed in many collections of his writings and is available on line, including the American Chesterton Society’s website. The essay may be found here on the web: https://www.chesterton.org/introduction-to-job/
Here is just a snippet of wisdom from GKC applicable to the story of Job: “When you deal with any ancient artistic creation, do not suppose that it is anything against it that it grew gradually.”
It should go without saying but reading the “Book of Job” would be a good idea also!!!
In April we shall take up the topic of “The Decline and Death of G. K. Chesterton”. His writings about the end of mortal life are also in play for this meeting. But it is kind of an independent study project from biographies, eulogies, etc. Good reading!!
The above date represents the third Monday of the month and that is our regular meeting with a starting time of 7 PM (but come when you can and leave when you have to go). We will be found in the downstairs dining area of C. J. Muggs located at 101 W. Lockwood, Webster Groves in the historic Gorlock Building. The management has been very supportive of our meetings and the wait staff has been exemplary in taking care of us. We have room to grow so please come and bring a friend/family member/enemy to experience the richness of G. K. Chesterton’s thought.
