Bishop C. Andrew
As suggested by a Book Club member...
Inside the Church, we are constantly and
consistently reading the gospels through the lens of supporting our own institution and structure. This prevents us from hearing the critique Jesus offered in his own day and his emphatic and
persistent call to be and do differenly now (Matthew 23:12). Stories that will be covered include: Widow's Mite, Rich Young Ruler, Destruction of the
Temple, Searching for the Lost Coin, Sower of the Seeds, Transfiguration, and the Great Commission. This book will flip the script of many Bible stories, allowing us to hear Jesus' call to change as one that is directed at us, rather than as one we should direct toward others.
Remember...ALL are welcome to join the group!
Even if you do not read (or do not finish) the books. Our discussions aim to lively, interestin, and inclusive. So, don't feel shy about joining if you are able.
