Our group gathers each Wednesday in the Chapel from 11 a.m. to noon to hear 3 lessons from Scripture and to read aloud a chapter from McLaren's book We Make the Road by Walking.
The great Old Testaments stories have been our jumping off point. Creation, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and the Flood, Abram before he was Abraham.
Each week we begin by sharing thoughts and ideas from the lessons and chapters and then we start sharing stories.
If people miss a week, that's OK. You can easily read at home or in the Chapel where we keep a book or two.
The theology that runs throughout these chapters is the invitation to aliveness. In Chapter three we read: "The universe if God's creative project, filled with beauty, opportunity, challenge, and meaning. It runs on the meaning or pattern we see embodied in the life of Jesus."
You are welcome to join us any week. The format easily allows for folks to come and go as they are able.
On Wednesday, October 21 we will be reading together Chapter Seven: It's Not Too Late. The sharing is: Share a story about a time when you almost gave up, but are glad you didn't.
