Small Groups: Session 3 2021
This session starts the week of September 12 and ends the week of October 31.
8 weeks – 3 Options
Option #1: Book Study: Virus as a Summons to Faith (by Walter Brueggemann)
Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann takes a look at how critical faith may be understood through the lens of the COVID-19 virus. His reflections challenge us to accept the opportunity and the responsibility that this virus has brought and find encouragement in the midst of the current crisis. Order your book through your favorite bookseller. You may consider an ebook – Brueggemann occasionally uses words that may be unfamiliar to many of us and an ebook provides ready access to definitions and context :-). THIS GROUP WILL MEET ONLINE via ZOOM.
Option #2: Walking group
Each week, this group will meet for a short time together and a 45 minute – hour walk. Gathering place will be Lake Murray, near the boat launch. This is an opportunity to get to know others in a very casual setting. Walk at your own pace and enjoy the outdoors. THIS GROUP WILL BE IN-PERSON, following COVID recommendations for outdoor activities as articulated by the San Diego County Department of Health.
Option #3: Bible Study: What Is The Bible? (by Rob Bell)
We pick up our study of Rob Bell’s challenge to read the Bible with new eyes. We’ll take up Parts 3 & 4 of this book, covering many of the burning questions we ask about many Biblical texts. Why are there all those genealogies? What about all that wrath? What about the contradictions? to name a few. If you haven’t been part of this group before, YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN! Purchase your book through your favorite bookseller and read through Parts 1 & 2 before the session begins. THIS GROUP WILL MEET ONLINE via ZOOM.
