This year at our annual meeting, the congregation had a lively discussion about engaging both children and millennials. In response to some of what was raised, Rev. Brad will be hosting a discussion on the recently published book by bestselling (and somewhat controversial) author Rob Bell. Bell’s latest book, “What Is the Bible? How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything”, is an exploration of what the Bible is and how it is relevant for today.
While Bell’s approach may not be appreciated by everyone, it is sure to generate discussion surrounding the nature and function of those sacred texts that are so foundational to our faith. Bell’s book is available at Chapters or can be ordered through various book dealers online.
