Join Our Summer Book Read!
Our summer read this year has been Rowan Williams' Being Christian, a fresh look at Christian essentials by one of the world's greatest living theologians. Three chances to talk about Rowan Williams' "Being Christian" are coming up: Monday August 28th at 5:30pm with Adam and Annie Morrissette at the Esquire, Thursday September 14th at 7:30pm with Fr. Caleb in the church courtyard, and Sunday September 17th at 4pm with Roger and Sara Burrus at their home. Attend whichever group works best, but your hosts would very much appreciate RSVPs so they can have food and drink ready for you. If you do not have a directory to check contact information, the office can assist you.
In this simple, beautifully written book former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams explores four essential components of the Christian life: baptism, Bible, Eucharist, and prayer. Despite huge differences in Christian thinking and practice both today and in past centuries, he says, these four basic elements have remained constant and indispensable for the majority of those who call themselves Christians.
In accessible, pastoral terms Williams discusses the meaning and practice of baptism, the Bible, the Eucharist, and prayer, inviting readers to really think through the Christian faith and how to live it out. Questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter help readers to dig deeper and apply Williams's insights to their own lives.
