Spiritual book discussion group to meet “Not by Bread Alone,” a spiritual book discussion group will meet on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 5 p.m., at Panera Bread, 1300 State Route 17 in Ramsey. This month’s selection is Graham Greene’s “The Power and the Glory.” The novel portrays a vicious persecution of the clergy in Mexico, where a worldly priest is on the run. With the police closing in, his routes of escape are being shut off, but compassion and humanity force him along the road to his destiny, reluctant to abandon those who need him.
