From the Interim Senior Pastor Dear Friends,

One of my interests is reading. My usual path involves books about transitions, church, and spirituality. However, I am always trying to expand my horizons and appreciate suggestions for books which have been meaningful to you. Summer is a great time to assemble a new reading list. I recently completed Sum It Up by Pat Summitt. I am presently reading The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. My immediate to read list: Social Media in the Church by Bruce Reyes-Chow When “Spiritual But Not Religious” Is Not Enough Seeing God in Surprising Places Even the Church by Lillian Daniel

Dr. David Horne, Interim Senior Pastor, davidh@fpcnaples.org

Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg I think I will need a longer summer. Worship is the central activity of the people of God. The summer months are sometimes considered “vacation” time away from the church. Whenever you are able in your summer schedule, please remember to worship. Worship is at 9:30 a.m. The welcoming of families and friends after worship is an important part of the hospitality and fellowship of First Presbyterian Church. You are encouraged to visit in Spencer Hall. Guests at worship have an immediate impression of the gracious hospitality this congregation lives. See you at worship. Peace,

The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout Dr. David L. Horne
