Armchair Travelers will meet on Thursday, March 7th, at 12:00 noon in the Lushbough Room of the Sturgis Public Library to discuss books that focus on saving the planet. A list of potential reads has been sent to interested readers, but please holler if you’d like the list and didn’t get it. The librarians generally have books on each month’s topic from their stash displayed near the check-out desk, so stop down at the library if you need inspiration.
Armchair Travelers Book Club is sponsored jointly by the Sturgis Area Arts Council and the Sturgis Public Library. It is open to all interested readers and meets at noon on the first Thursday of each month except in August. Online reporting is also an option if you’re from out of town or can’t get to a discussion.
If you have questions or would like a list of recommendations, please let me know - firstname.lastname@example.org

The Benedictine Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery’s Peace Center offer this year’s Spiritual Enrichment Program, designed for Christian men and women in search of radical interior freedom. The program will meet online one Saturday morning per month, from 9:30 to 11:30 am, from September through April. Those interested are welcome to gather with Sister staff members to share prayer and dialogue on the selected reading.
Guided by Albert Nolan’s book Jesus Today: A Spirituality of Radical Freedom, we will discover our own personal transformations through Jesus’ spirituality and the experience of oneness. The text invites dialogue on topics such as The Signs of our Times, and Jesus’ Spirituality. As part of this program, participants are invited to schedule a personal silent retreat, with two overnights, at our Peace Center in Yankton.
The Benedictines who staff the Benedictine Peace Center - Sisters Jeanne Ranek, Doris, Oberembt, and Mary Jo Polak, look forward to gathering via Zoom with men and women from coast to coast and beyond who desire to deepen their faith life by connecting with others with a similar desire. Registration is requested by August 20. Find more information at https://yanktonbenedictines.org/spiritual-enrichment-program/. Register online or contact the Peace Center at email@example.com or call 605-668-6292.
