Led by Dr. Ginny Smith

 

               On Saturday, October 14, 2017, Seeking Wisdom will continue its spiritual journey as Jesus  followers using Brian D. McLaren’s book entitled We Make the Road By Walking: A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation, and Activation

               This month we’re on to chapter 25, “JESUS, VIOLENCE, AND POWER.”  The Scripture readings for this chapter include: Isaiah 42:1-9; 53:1-12; and Matthew 16:13-17:9.

               Here is a teaser from this chapter:

               “In many ways, we’re all like Peter. We speak with great insight one minute and we make complete fools of ourselves the next. We’re clueless about how many of our pious and popular assumptions are actually illusions. We don’t know how little we know, and we have no idea how many of our ideas are wrong. Like Peter, we may use the right words to describe Jesus – Christ, son of the living God. But we still don’t understand his heart, his wisdom, his way. But that’s OK. Peter was still learning, and so are we. After all, life with Jesus is one big field trip that we’re taking together. So, let’s keep walking.”

 

               In looking ahead, the dates for our future gatherings are October 14, Making It Real; November 11, “A New Identity”; December 9, “A New Path to Aliveness;” January 13, “Your Secret Life;February 10, “Why We Worry, Why We Judge;” March 10, “The Choice Is Yours;” April 7, Palm Sunday Peace March; May 12, “The Uprising Begins; and June 9, “The Uprising of Fellowship.”

               Hope to see you on October 14.  PEOPLE OF ALL AGES ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME.
