A Church for All People

Seeking Wisdom


A Gathering for Those Seeking to Deepen Their Relationship with God

And Find Out More About Being a Jesus Follower


Saturday, December 9, 2017 – 10:00 – 11:30 AM – Fireside Room

Led by Dr. Ginny Smith


               As we gather on December 9 during the season of Advent, we’re going to return to an earlier chapter of Brian D. McLaren’s book entitled We Make the Road by Walking.  In chapter 4, “The Drama of Desire,” we’ll be reading Genesis 3:1-13, Psalm 32, and Philippians 2:3-11, and applying them to our lives today.

               Think of all the advertisers who are trying to influence our desires. Think of all the politicians who are eager to mold our desires so they can manipulate us for their advantage. . . .  we are caught in the drama of desire.  That’s another reason Jesus is so important to us: because he modeled a different way of life.  He gave us a down-to-earth example of God’s creative self-giving.”

In looking ahead, the dates for our future gatherings are 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 December 9.  PEOPLE OF ALL AGES ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME.
