March 8 through April 5, 6pm-8:30pm, Tierney Hall
During Lent, please join us as we gather on five Wednesday evenings, beginning on March 8. Each Wednesday, we will gather in Tierney Hall for a simple dinner at 6pm, evening prayer at 6:45pm, and a discussion at 7:30pm of The Last Week: A Day-by-Day Account of Jesus’s Final Week in Jerusalem, by Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan. We will conclude by 8:30pm.
Please come to any or all parts of the program as your schedule permits. Please sign up during the Sunday coffee hours from February 12 through April 2. On the sign-up sheets, please indicate which dates you will attend (important to ensure proper food quantity). Each week, a vegetarian soup and gluten free bread will be available.
There are several ways to obtain a copy of the featured book, The Last Week. Jan has offered to order them; if you like to be included in the order, please let Jan know by February 19. There is also a single copy of the book available for checkout in the church library. It is located with the Adult Education and Book Club books. Additionally, copies of the book are available online for about $10. Our readings will be as follows:
