Starting this month: The Ohio Conference Winter Read, a Conference-wide book group on Zoom, will be returning for the third year in a row.

We would love to have you join us for conversation about the book Not Quite Fine: Mental Health, Faith and Showing Up for One Another by Carlene Hill Byron. Discussion leaders will be Emiley Shenk and  Darin Nissley.

Warren Kinghorn, MD, ThD, of the Duke University Medical Center and Duke Divinity School, recommends Not Quite Fine, saying, “For those who care about mental illness and wonder how to help, this is a wonderful place to start.”

Winter Read discussions will take place on Zoom on five Thursday evenings: Jan. 11, Jan. 18, Feb. 1, Feb. 8 and Feb. 15. Sessions will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. If you are unable to participate in all five sessions, don’t worry. Registrants will be able to view recordings of sessions.

Registration for the Ohio Conference Winter Read is free, but participants need to purchase their own copy of the book. It is available from the MennoMedia website: and from Amazon: A reading schedule is available at
