Sunday Morning Faith Forum Focusing On Inspired
Faith Forum is taking a break this week for God’s Work Our Hands Sunday and will reconvene next week continuing to explore Rachel Held Evans’ book Inspired. Last Sunday was an opportunity to look at Deliverance Stories. The stories about times when God makes a way when there seems to be no way. The discussion centered around how we make meaning of those stories in our lives by paying attention to the narrative context in which they are written. Evans challenged us to question, “Are we reading with the prejudice of love, with Christ as our model, or are we reading with the prejudice of judgment and power, self-interest and greed? Are we seeking to enslave or liberate, burden or set-free?”
If you don’t have time to read the book, please come anyway. A brief chapter overview will be provided before the discussion begins. Grab a cup of coffee and a friend and come to Covenant Hall from 9:40 am until 10:30 am.
StPLC Has A High School Youth Group!
A small team of parents and youth have joined forces to plan group activities for Saint Peter High School Youth. For now, the plan is to meet monthly in each other’s homes, as well as attend the Rainbow Trail High School retreat and to pull off another mission trip in 2020. If you or a highschooler you know would be interested in participating in any of these activities, please contact Jeanne Maloney.
