Book of the Month – “Once An Arafat Man” by Tass Saada
At the age of 17, Tass Saada was a PLO sniper and chauffer for Arafat. His experience growing up as a Palestinian refugee had taught him to hate, especially the Jews.
However, his life took a dramatic change on March 14th, 1993 when God revealed Himself to Tass in an amazing way.
This book tells his story and gives you an intimate look at how hatred can turn into love and hope.
Thinking Aloud – Tuesday 19th November 7.30pm
The Search for Inner Peace and Contentment
Are people of faith more contented and at peace than non-believers?
· Do you need money to be happy?
· How can you accept God’s forgiveness if you can’t forgive yourself?
· If your life is in turmoil how do you even start to find peace?
There are a lot of unhappy, angry or stressed people in our country, in our community. Do we have any answers for them, for ourselves?
Or is inner peace and contentment just a myth, a pipedream, an unattainable goal? Come and share in the discussion. Come to share fellowship and refreshments even if you think you have nothing to contribute. All are welcome at 6 Forth Reach at 7.30pm on
Tues 19th November.
