Discipleship

Dear Friends,

Join us on Wednesday nights, March 16-April 13, 7:00pm-8:30pm, for opportunities to reflect on the Christian journey.

The facilitators will be using the book, A Long Obedience in the Same Direction, by Eugene Peterson, translator of The Message.  He takes a look at each of the Songs of Ascents, the psalms numbering 120-134, which are those believed to be the psalms sung as pilgrims went up to Jerusalem for each of the three main festivals.

You do not need the book, but a Bible would be nice to have alongside.

We start with a brief compline service, then share a simple supper of soup and bread (provided by our church members), and then have the program.  We finish promptly at 8:30pm.

With many thanks to two guest facilitators: the Rev. Parker Jameson (March 23), from St. Luke's on the Lake; and the Rev. Jerry Sneary (April 6).
