The Promised Land
Monday's at 6:30 pm. Facilitator: Wes Bullock.
Author, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan illustrates how God guided his people to a specific place – the Promised Land – to impact the world both in ancient times and today. Just like the time and place of our birth shapes our journey, so the land and culture of the Hebrew people shaped their story. Promised Land provides wonderful context to the stories of that time. Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God's Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible's fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the Scriptures' significance. Prophets and Kings, a study by the same author will begin in mid-October.
Contemplative Walk with Christ,
Mondays at 7:00 pm, Facilitators: Sam Purses and Barb Rich.
Faith Church’s Contemplative Walk with Christ spiritual formation study group will be reading "Aphorisms Fleshed Out" by Bill Picard, a former Catholic Priest who served for a time at Canton' s Our Lady of Peace Parish (now Christ the Servant Parish). The book entails short essays using aphorisms, "an expression of wisdom/fact tinged by experience". Picard adds his own experiences and thoughts to each aphorism title/essay. We may be surprised where our own thoughts will lead us as we contemplate the aphorisms presented within the book. We will gather each week to share about our contemplative journey as we read several essays a week. Please join us as we meditate for 10 or so minutes followed by sharing of our reading material.
