Celebration of Discipline
Over the past 40 years, many have considered this book as the best modern book on Christian spiritual disciplines. Through its pages, Richard Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found. The cost of the book is $14. The class will meet in the Miller Room and be facilitated by Dr. Mimi Dixon and Deborah Rillos.
The Dangerous Act of Loving Your Neighbor
This book is an intensely human and courageously confessal reflection on radical loving. Labberton’s pastoral approach is inviting, drawing the reader into the urgent conversation that thoughtful Christians need as they desperately attempt to reclaim an embodied love in a world that longs to experience it. The cost of the book is $14. The class will meet in the Room for One More and be facilitated by Joel and Juli Adams.
The book of Joshua takes the story of salvation forward from the leadership and teaching of Moses. It’s a book that demonstrates God’s great purposes for the people of Israel as worked out in the messes, storms, sins, blue skies, daily work, and dreams of our common lives; working with us as we are and not as we should be. There is no cost for this class. This class will meet in Classroom A and be facilitated by Joe Rillos.
The youth will be studying the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. A masterpeice of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironice portrayal of human life and foilbes from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to “Our Father Below.” The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation – and triumph – ever written. The youth will meet in the Youth Room and class will be facilitated by Jason Blaine, Amanda Pouliot, and Andrew Osten.
