June 9, 2018 – 10:00 – 11:30 AM – Fireside Room

Led by Dr. Ginny Smith

 

Please join us Saturday, June 9, 2018, for another enthusiastic and enlightening discussion of God’s Word and how it applies to and can be lived out in our lives today. 

Brian D. McLaren’s book entitled We Make the Road by Walking is an excellent guide in helping us dig deeper into what can often be unfamiliar territory.  On June 9, we will be exploring chapter 11, “From Ugliness, A Beauty Emerges.” The Scripture passages we’ll be reading are Deuteronomy 7:1-11, Psalms 137:1-9 and 149:1-9, and Matthew 15:21-39.

Here is a teaser that will be a part of our discussion.

“We can’t ignore the brutality found in many scripture passages. . . .   Our ancestors, led by Moses and Joshua, believed God sent them into the world in conquest, to show no mercy to their enemies, to defeat and kill them. But now, following Christ, we hear God giving us a higher mission.  Now we believe God sends us into the world in compassion, to show mercy, to heal, to feed, – to nurture and protect life rather than take it.”

               Our next meeting will be on September 8, when we will be exploring “Stories That Shape Us” and “The Great Conversation.”  Future dates include: 2018 – October 13, November 10, and December 8; 2019 – January 12, February 9, March 9, April 13, May 11, and June 8.

               Hope to see you on June 8.  PEOPLE OF ALL AGES ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME.
