March Book of the Month
How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals
The Ocean Unity Book Club meets the second Tuesday of every month at Georgie's Restaurant in Newport at 11:30 am. The next meeting is on Tuesday, March 12th. The March book selection, “How to be a Good Creature,” teaches us how to respect the loving animals around us. Written by Sy Montgomery, award-winning author of “the Soul of an Octopus,” this restorative memoir reflects on the personalities and quirks of thirteen animals—Sy’s friends—and the truths revealed by their grace. It also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world. Ocean Unity's monthly book club meeting is a time for friends to gather for a relaxing lunch and enjoy a friendly, lively discussion. Lunch is optional of course, and we welcome those who haven't read the book. All BookClub selections, as well as many other metaphysical, spiritual growth, self-help, prayer & meditation, and related titles are available in the Ocean Unity Bookstore following Sunday service around 12:00 Noon and on Thursdays 12:30 – 1:30pm and Fridays 10am to 2pm.
A few previous selections at the Ocean Unity Book Club meetings have included Maria Shriver's I've Been Thinking...Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life; Dr. Ruth Miller's Healing With Spirit; Oprah Winfrey's The Wisdom of Sundays: Life-Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations; and Eric Butterworth's Spiritual Economics: The Principles and Process of True Prosperity.
