Mayflower WEBBS Study Group


The Wednesday Evening Brown Bag Study (WEBBS) group meets every Wednesday evening from 6:00pm to 7:00pm just prior to choir practice. This allows choir members to participate in a study group here at Mayflower. However, WEBBS is open to anyone interested in attending. You need not be a choir member or even a member of Mayflower.

Current Study

The WEBBS group started its fall session Wednesday September 15 reading the book by Karen Armstrong, A History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Ballantine Books, 1993. The group decided to cover one chapter per week. Each participant is asked to summarize three key elements from each chapter as a starting point for the discussions.

Previous Study

The Wednesday Evening Brownbag Book Study (WEBBS) completed reading two books simultaneously (Francis S. Collins, The Language of God, Free Press, 2006 and George C. Cunningham, Decoding the Language of God, Prometheus, 2010).  The first book is a scientists defense of Christianity and the second book is an atheists response.  This was a lively discussion.
