Greetings, Bay Area Chestertonians!

We will meet up on the first Wednesday of the month, December 5th, at 7:00 PM at Country Gourmet in Sunnyvale.  This month’s story is “The Miracle of Moon Crescent,” from G. K. Chesterton’s Father Brown of the Church of Rome, published by Ignatius Press.  The story can also be read online.  If you’re feeling particularly inspired, please feel free to bring an additional bit of Chesterton with you to share with the group, anything from a brief quip to a paragraph or stanza.  Last month we veered off into a great little digression about a song from Mumford & Sons which seemed to have been inspired by GKC.
