Friday Five – Books!

Today’s RevGalBlogPals Friday Five is books! What are you reading, what’s in your ‘to read’ pile, what would you recommend?

I always have a stack of books on the go… too many to read in the time available. I probably have more than five on the go right now, but these ones are at the top.

  1. From Where I Stand – Jody Wilson Raybould – former Attorney General of Canada, writes about Indigenous issues, and Canada’s colonial past, and to deconstruct that with a shared vision of a way forward.
  2. An Honourable Life – Mayann Francis, a memoir of the first black Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia.
  3. Dynamic Discernment –  Sarah B. Drummond, this is actually at the top of my pile as I received a free copy if I would review it. That is a task for Study Leave next week.
  4. Feeding My Mother – Jann Arden, Canadian singer/songwriter, actor shared unflinchingly and with great humour and compassion, what it’s like to become a parent to her mher.
  5. Unsettling the Word – Biblical Experiments in Decolonization – Various Indigenous and Settle author offer an alternate reading of Biblical texts. They ask the question, can these text be use for liberation and justice instead of oppression?
