9:00am - 2:00pm
Former FirstChurch associate minister Rev. Tom Downing will be our featured speaker for this fall retreat.
“Why Read the Bible? And How!”
At this retreat we’ll be exploring exciting ideas from two new books about the Bible.
The first is Rob Bell’s What Is the Bible? How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel about Everything.
The second book is Inspired – Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans.
And it won’t be just theory. We will learn how to get the most out of our reading by doing mini-studies of some scriptures important to today’s world.
A light lunch will be served ($10 suggested donation).
