Our Year-Long Biblical Journey September

Throughout the coming year our Work of Piety will be to participate in our year-long biblical journey with Brian McLaren’s book, We Make the Road by Walking.

In preparation for each Sunday we encourage you to read the assigned chapter and related scripture texts, and spend time, individually or in a small group, with the reflection questions provided. Even if you don’t have the book, we encourage you to read the weekly scripture texts which will be printed each month in the newsletter.

Sept. 1-7
Read the preface and introduction of the book.
If you don’t yet have a copy of the book, you can find the preface, introduction, and first three chapters online at: https://www.facebook.com/JerichoBooks/app_137541772984354
