New Adult Bible Study
“Way of Life” Adult Bible Study Begins January 17th
I hope you will join me on Wednesday nights, Jan. 17-Feb. 7 during WNF for a four-part Bible study called “Way of Life,” which engages the idea of shifting Christianity away from an outdated system of beliefs to a new way of life based on love.
The study, authored by Brian McLaren and based on his book The Great Spiritual Migration, challenges participants to focus less on doctrine and more on new ways of reading Scripture, and ultimately on love as manifested in the life of Jesus. Click here for a video preview.
McLaren is a Christian thinker, author and activist. He is the author of more than a dozen books, is an Auburn Senior Fellow and a board chair of Convergence (convergenceus.org).
This should make for some interesting discussions!
You will need a Participants Guide for the Way of Life Bible study. You are welcome to order one on your own or through Johnna in the church office for a donation of $10. Please have your order in by Friday, Jan. 12. You are encouraged to read Session 1 of the Participant’s Guide prior to our first meeting.
You may also want to read McLaren’s book, The Great Spiritual Migration, though that is not a requirement for the Bible study.
Each week during the course, we will also watch and discuss a 15-minute video presentation on that day’s topic.
I look forward to seeing you on Jan. 17 for the Way of Life Bible Study as Wednesday Night Fellowship returns!
