The Long Journey (November 2022)

For November, we will focus on Christian spirituality as a long journey. Just as the road behind us has been uneven, we can trust there will be more surprises ahead. Indeed, following Jesus will take us places beyond our wildest imagination and require the spiritual practice of locating ourselves on a long historical trajectory. We will consider the rise, fracturing, and decline of a Bible civilization in America and the enduring role of the Bible through times of religious pluralism and cultural upheaval. Taking stock of our past will prepare us to look to the future with hope.

Our book of the month is Mark Noll’s America’s Book: The Rise and Decline of a Bible Civilization, 1794-1911. Mark will also be our webinar speaker on November 12, 2022.

During November, we will be learning from two prominent historians of Christianity: Mark Noll at our webinar on 11/12 and Kristin Du Mez at our monthly fireside chat on 11/17.
