Emergent Cohort and Practicing the Way of Jesus
Here is a little reminder that this Tuesday the Statesville Cohort will be gathering once again. This time we are going to begin a discussion on Mark Scandrette's new book, "Practicing The Way of Jesus, Life Together In The Kingdom Of Love".
We are going to discuss the first chapter of the book (among other things I am sure), which is mostly an introduction to what the book is about. In other words, don't feel like you shouldn't come if you haven't read the first chapter.
The book is about putting action to our talk, and actually living out the teachings of Jesus. The book provides some "experiments" to be practices within the community. The plan is to read the book together and then, as a community, tryout some of the experiments.
Should be an interesting/challenging time.
As always, Everyone is invited. This is not a theologically controversial book. In other words, it doesn't matter what side of the fence you are on, conservative, liberal, progressive, incarnational, or whatever you label yourself, if you have a desire to follow Jesus and live out his teachings then join us on the first Tuesdays of every month.
We meet at the Statesville Starbucks on East Broad St. 7:00pm
I hope to see you there.
