This year our congregation is on a year-long biblical journey guided by a newly pub-lished book called, We Make the Road by Walking: A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation and Activation by author Brian McLaren.
If you have not received your own copy, check with Pastors Donna or Marty. You are also welcome to purchase your own copy (or download) of the book from your favorite book supplier.
In preparation for each Sunday we encourage you to read the assigned chapter and relat-ed 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.
