MM Book & Movie List

Dear Community, At Homily Sharing time on Sunday, December 29 we shared a look back on books and movies. My invitation was to share what were our "favorites" for the past year in terms of reading and viewing that inspired, uplifted, informed, and challenged us. The discussion was wonderful and here is the list. I will have it posted on our website - maybe a sidebar link or in the Members Section. Any selections not mentioned that you would like to see included, please send me an email either to this address or to jimryan6885@gmail.com and I will see that it gets included. Take care, Jim
