Book Study–Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error Beginning Wednesday, October 3, our Wednesday evening programming will offer a discussion of the book Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error by Journalist Kathryn Schulz. In it, the author explores why we find it so gratifying to be right and so maddening to be mistaken, and how this attitude toward error impacts our relationships—whether among family members, colleagues, neighbors, or nations.
Drawing on thinkers as varied as Augustine, Darwin, Freud, Alan Greenspan, and Groucho Marx, Schulz proposes that error is both a given and a gift – one that can transform our worldviews, our relationships, and, most profoundly, ourselves.
Each evening’s session will begin in the Parish Hall with a simple supper at 6:30 p.m. followed by our discussion at 7:00 p.m.
Copies of the book are available for purchase online in hard copy or in electronic format (see below). Several copies will be available in the Parish Office for those who need assistance with the purchase.
