Please join us for a Book Discussion of "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor E. Frankl on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 from 6-8 PM at St. John's Church in the Field Hall.  Bring a sandwich & beverage. Child Care provided.  Viktor Frankl's wife, father, mother and brother died in the concentration camps in Nazi Germany.  Enduring extreme hunger, cold and brutality, first in Auschwitz then Dachau, Frankl himself was under constant threat of going to the gas ovens.  He lost every physical belonging on his first day in the camps and was forced to surrender a scientific manuscript he considered his life's work. This is, if ever ther was one, a story that could excuse a person's belief that life is meaningless and suicide a reasonable option.  Yet having been lowered into the pits of humanity, Frankl emerged an optimist.  His reasoning was that even in the most terrible circumstances, a person still has the freedom to choose how they see their circumstances and create meaning out of them. Books available at Barrington Books and Amazon.com.
