Pam Oliver facilitating
All are welcome!
Please join us even if this is your first time!
Our summer J&J programming will focus on the Phoenix Affirmations, which the pastors will be preaching about this summer. The reading(s) will be kept light most weeks. The first affirmation is “Christian love of God includes walking fully in the path of Jesus, without denying the legitimacy of other paths God may provide humanity.”
Please read ahead of time and come prepared to discuss the following:
- a one-page discussion guide for the first affirmation;
- chapter one of Eric Elnes’ The Phoenix Affirmations, available as an inexpensive ebook or paperback.
We are hoping J&J can be somewhat self-organizing during the summer. We will provide a schedule for discussing the affirmations and can take care of sending out the links to the discussion starters.
We hope to discuss this at our June 4 meeting.
