Reading meme

I got tagged by Michael!

The rules of this meme are as follows:

1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
2. Find page 123
3. Find the first 5 sentences
4. Post the next 3 sentences
5. Tag 5 people

The nearest book to me is a toss up between the bible and “Christianity for the Rest of Us” by Diana Butler Bass. I’ll choose Bass’ book.

Here’s the quote that comes out:

Brothers from the Society of Saint John the Evangelist visit the parish; and members of the congregation make retreats with the monks. Parishioners are clearly expected to tend to their spiritual lives by participating in “closet” activities of prayer and Bible study. Having observed all these things, I asked Gary if he was trying to create a kind of open, parish-based, lay monastery.

I tag:

1. Dad
2. Tanya
3. Marta
4. Mike
5. Dan

  1. I liked the tag “game.” here is my entry. It is from the nearest book: Thinking Critically by John Chaffee.

    The Alien and Sedation Acts of 1798 placed restrictions on which ethnicities or nationalities could apply for citizenship, and authorized the president to order the deportation of all immigrants judged dangerous to national security. The “sedation” of concern in 1798 were the ideas of the French Revolution. the Chinese Exclusion (Geary) Act of 1882, in violation of the express terms of a treaty in force between china and the Untied States, forbade Chinese laborers from entering the United States.
