The Long Journey and God’s Lavish Love (Oct 2023)

Following Jesus will take us places beyond our wildest imagination and require the spiritual practice of locating ourselves on a long historical trajectory. If the road is long and winding, we can take comfort in knowing that our companion and guide is a God of inexhaustible love. 

Throughout October, we will learn about a God who invites us to the table of a rich and nourishing feast. We will encounter a God who sees people we overlook, even ourselves. 

A seminar with with Rev. Adriene Thorne will help frame our discussions throughout the month.
