Book Study Small Groups:
Faith Unraveled: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned How to Ask Question: Sundays @ 3PM begins March 7th via Zoom
We’re currently in the last weeks of studying the book, Living the Questions: The Wisdom of Progressive Christianity, by David M. Felton and Jeff Procter-Murphy, while putting plans in motion for our next offering.
The book that we’ll be reading will be Faith Unraveled: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned How to Ask Questions, by Rachel Held Evans. A brief description follows:
“Eighty years after the Scopes Monkey Trial made a spectacle of Christian fundamentalism and brought national attention to her hometown, Rachel Held Evans faced a trial of her own when she began to have doubts about her faith.
In Faith Unraveled, Rachel recounts growing up in a culture obsessed with apologetics and struggling as her own faith unraveled one unexpected question at a time.
For her faith to survive, Rachel realizes that it must adapt to change and evolve. Using, as an illustration, her own spiritual journey from certainty to doubt to faith, Evans challenges us to disentangle our faith from false fundamentals, and to trust in a God who is big enough to handle our tough questions.
In a changing cultural environment, where new ideas seem to threaten the safety and security of the faith, Faith Unraveled is a fearlessly honest story of survival.”
I will be leading the group, and the day and time will remain the same, Sundays at 3pm via Zoom. Consider this your invitation and, if you’d like to join the group, please contact Mike Tupper, Victoria, or me. New paperbacks are $15; however, on sites such as Amazon, plenty of used copies are available for between $5-$10.
Hoping you’ll consider the offer…
