Beginning Wednesday, January 10th at 6:30, Pastor Jason will be facilitating a four week group. While the group is based on Brian McLaren’s book The Great spiritual Migration, reading the book is not a prerequisite. The participant’s guide for the group is $10.
This group will also be offered beginning February 15th at 8:30 PM online, so if you’re schedule or location keeps you from being a part of our groups, we would love for you to be involved in this new experiment!
In The Great Spiritual Migration, Brian McLaren argues that in order to survive, Christianity must shift away from an outdated system of beliefs to a way of life based on love. In order to achieve this, McLaren outlines three migrations: spiritually, Christians focus less on doctrine and more on the abiding life of love made manifest in Jesus; theologically, a new way of reading Scripture shifts away from literalism and toward a more generous, literary approach; and missionally, the new way of life leads to “organizing religion” rather than organized religion, in which spiritual activists are committed to ecological, economic, and interfaith concerns.
