Discussing The Great Spiritual Migration:  How the World’s Greatest Religion is Seeking a Better Way to be Christian
by Brian McLaren  (2016)

First Church members and friends are invited to read this book and talk about its ideas.  It’s a book about putting new wine in new wine skins – examining the power of the Christian message, with Jesus’ revolutionary teachings at the center just as they always have been but now in a new way for a contemporary time.  A scientific educated culture can find the stories of the bible unacceptable and irrelevant – can lose the power of mystery and mystical encounter with the Holy in the desire for logic and proof.  But I believe our Christian faith is needed now more than ever – so how do we witness to that power in our current time?You can read more about the book, or order it on Amazon.

St. Andrew’s Church is also reading this book and both churches will come together to discuss it.
