Community Book Club in January

January 6, 2017

First Baptist in Beverly with the Beverly Multifaith Coalition hosts an exciting and provocative book club:

Stories from the Shadows

 Community Book Club (two-part series) based on the book Stories from the Shadows: Reflections of a Street Doctor by James J. O’Connell, M.D.  Dr. O’Connell has spent the last 30 years serving patients who live on the streets of Boston.  Stories from the Shadows is a collection of stories of patients he has come to know.  In reading we find their stories are not so different from our own.  Be prepared to learn from those who live on the streets and those who walk with them.  Join us January 23rd & 30th at 7:00 p.m. at the home of Ron and Leslie Brennan (6 Baker Ave.) or January 18th & 25th at 10:30 a.m. in the FBC Lounge, led by Bobbie Grant.  Copies of the book are available for $14 in the main office at First Baptist Church.  Please RSVP to Kent Harrop via email at for Monday evening or Wednesday morning book club options.
