An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Monday, repeating until June 4, 2021
One event on May 31, 2021 at 12:00 pm
Join a circle of friends for a time of Intercessory prayer followed by discussion of the topic of the day. Read more about the Monday Lunch Group here.
Throughout May and perhaps longer, the group will be discussing Kate Bowler’s Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I’ve Loved. Discussion will be led by Rev. Robert Parrish. The group will be watching videos from Bowler’s series of the same name, and discussing a couple of chapters each week.
Robert writes: “For the next month, or so, I will facilitate a discussion on the book EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON AND OTHER LIES I’VE LOVED. This book is a best seller by Duke Divinity Professor Kate Bowler. In it she chronicles her experience with stage four cancer with the backdrop of the prosperity gospel. Throughout our study together you will have the opportunity to share aspects of your journeys when it comes to pain or suffering. You can also disclose where you feel God was or was not on such journeys with you. Along with the above, you might also share where you found hope and love. To enhance our understanding of the book there will be scripture readings from the book of Job or Psalms during our devotional period.”
Weekly readings are announced in the group’s listserv. To receive that weekly email, contact Lavon Page.
