Here’s a picture of me with the newest addition to my library of Brethren in Christ literature: a copy of Asa W. Climenhaga’s History of the Brethren in Christ Church. Publish in 1942, it’s the first history of the denomination.
The book was a gift from Karen Deyhle, a friend of the search for piety and obedience. Karen was kind enough to pick me up this book and D. Ray Heisey’s Healing Body and Soul: The Life and Times of Dr. W.O. Baker during Messiah Village‘s recent Fall Festival. Many thanks to Karen for her generosity!
I know the semester’s just begun, but I’m already placing History of the Brethren in Christ Church at the top of my winter break reading list. Come on, December!
