  2. A Way of Letting Go: One Woman’s Walk toward Forgiveness, by Wilma Derksen. Derksen’s daughter Candace was murdered here in Winnipeg in 1984, and she shares her experiences and ideas about how letting go of some of the misconceptions about grief can finally lead to hope and healing. The discussion of this book will be led by Jill Moats.
  3. Napkin Notes: Make Lunch Meaningful, Life Will Follow, by Garth Callaghan. Callaghan had always left little notes in his daughter’s lunch box. When he learned he had kidney cancer he compiled years’ worth of notes for her. In this inspirational memoir, he shares his story that may help us deepen our own relationships. This discussion will be facilitated by Gordon Clark.
