Crazy Christians

May 2022

Led by Amy Simons

We’ll meet online weekly in May to read and discuss “Crazy Christians: A Call to Follow Jesus” by The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry (Find it on Amazon)

Michael Curry is the current presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church and is known for his charismatic, and down-to-earth preaching. This is a faith-filled, inspiring book based on his 2012 general convention sermon that went viral. Here’s a quote for you, “We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God―like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it. And for those who would follow him, those who would be his disciples, those who would live as and be the people of the Way? It might come as a shock, but they are called to craziness.”

Genesis for Normal People

Summer 2022

Led by Amy Simons

Genesis for Normal People by Peter Enns (Find it on Amazon)

Behind the heady debates over evolution, Adam & Eve, and scientific evidence for the flood is a terrific story – one that anyone can understand, and one that has gripped people for ages. If you are not a Bible scholar but want to be able to read Genesis and understand its big picture, this brief, witty book is the guide you’ve been waiting for. Clear summaries and thought-provoking questions provide direction for personal reflection and group discussion.

Walk in Love

Fall 2022

Book Discussion: Walk in Love: Episcopal Beliefs and Practices by Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Shobe.

Led by Amy Simons

We’re going to get together and talk church. But not in a stuffy way like we’re taking a history class… In a relevant way, like when you look at your baptism photos, what you think and pray before you take communion, or when you attended your first Easter Vigil service.
