The high school book club met this past Friday afternoon to discuss their most recent selection “The Screwtape Letters” written by C.S. Lewis. This book was highly recommended by senior book club member Caleb Skocy. It is composed of letters from a devil; Uncle Screwtape who is writing letters to a fellow devil; his nephew Wormwood in an effort to advise him in the proper methods of temptation.
Members of the group agreed that this was not an easy read but most definitely gave them food for thought. Members found the methods used to lure mankind astray thought provoking. Of special interest was how some things such as “laughter” could start as harmless and turn into something hurtful. Ratings varied from 9.7 all the way a lowly 3 on a 10 points scale by the members.
Members enjoyed “Devils Food Cake” and oatmeal cookies.
The Rich Hill boys and girls basketball teams went to Archie for their jamboree last Friday. The teams played Butler, Kansas City Lutheran, and Archie. Both boys and girls played very well, but with mixed results. The boys won 5 out of 6 quarters and the girls won 1 out of 6 quarters.
