January 29, 2018- A Time to Stand by Robert Whitlow

In a small Georgia town where racial tensions run high and lives are at stake, can one lawyer stand up for justice against the tide of prejudice on every side?

Adisa Johnson, a young African-American attorney, is living her dream of practicing law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then a split-second mistake changes the course of her career.

Left with no other options, Adisa returns to her hometown where a few days earlier a white police officer shot an unarmed black teen who is now lying comatose in the hospital.

Adisa is itching to jump into the fight as a special prosecutor, but feels pulled to do what she considers unthinkable—defend the officer.

As the court case unfolds, everyone in the small community must confront their own prejudices. Caught in the middle, Adisa also tries to chart her way along a path complicated by her budding relationship with a charismatic young preacher who leads the local movement demanding the police officer answer for his crime.

This highly relevant and gripping novel challenges us to ask what it means to forgive while seeking justice and to pursue reconciliation while loving others as ourselves.

Please keep author, Dan Walsh, in prayer.  For those of you who don't know, he had surgery last week and ended up in the ICU.  From the Facebook post from his wife, Cindi, just a little while ago, things are looking better:

Good news! Dad's doctors came to see him and after reviewing his progress, including the high BP, they concluded his numbers are going to be off now and then as his body heals and adjusts to the surgery. We were worried, but the doctors are feeling confident enough to send him home today. Thank the Lord! And thank you all for the prayers....

I've been emailing back and forth with Krista McGee- she is a new YA author.  Her first book, First Date, comes out in January from Thomas Nelson.  She has agreed to join us for our February meeting!

We've never done YA before, so this will be a neat opportunity to invite your daughters, granddaughters, nieces and neighbors to book club.  The Senior High Girls and the Fusion girls will be joining us as well!  I'm really looking forward to February.
