Wounded By Love: The Life and Wisdom of Elder Porphyrios by Elder Porphyrios

Thank you Quinault for such a great suggestion and for the great links to find Wounded by Love at a reasonable price.  To see these links, please go to:

and scroll down.

Start date for reading will be on Saturday, May 28th.  

There will be an announcement with instructions posted on Saturday, May 28th unless the start date changes.  

Please do what you can to obtain this book, if you have trouble doing so, please conact me or Quinault so that we can adjust the start date or do what we can to help out.

Special mention and thanks to and for Quinault - she volunteered to help, so she is also a 'go to' person if a snag arises!

I apologize for the delay.

Same boat here.  Looking forward to it.

Crap, just saw this!

As in you haven't started reading, yet, or you didn't see any of this and didn't know, so you don't have the book?

If you haven't started reading, I tried to put it in 40 something page blocks so that busy people could easily handle it.
If you just saw that the book club is opening back up and we're starting with Wounded By Love, then if you would like to join in, the discussions are arranged that you can catch up pretty easily if you are no more than one or two weeks behind.  If you want to join in, please do! :)

I received my copy from Uncut Mountain Supply within three days of ordering. I placed a note that it was for a book discussion coming up soon.

Excellent service.

Wish I had done that.  My copy was part of a bigger order, which may delay the arrival considerably.  I'll catch up.
