On May 24th the pastors gathered online to suggest some books that we have been reading and offered selections that we would recommend for the summer. The categories ranged from mystery to theology to social commentary. As a group, the pastors really love to read, and we hope that we can share that joy with you all. Feel free to share what you are reading as well, tag us on Instagram @myersparkpres or share on Facebook.
