New Learning Circle Group Studying, "We Make the Road By Walking"

Join an East Brentwood Presbyterian Learning Circle where we seek to understand our journey of faith and what is means to follow Christ.

Take part in a personal and group study of Brian McLaren’s book We Make the Road By Walking: A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation, and Activation which offers spiritual seekers, ex-Christians, and long-time Christians from diverse backgrounds a common understanding of what it means to follow Christ. In previous adult education classes, we have had amazing conversations as we have read McLaren’s work and we expect this one to be the same.

Two weekly opportunities: We have two offerings during the week – one on Sunday mornings and one of Wednesday evenings. Please join in where it is most convenient for you.

 About the book: the book forms the basis of our conversation. Use the book for your own devotional reading at your leisure. Each short chapter (4-6 pages) of the book begins with a Bible passage followed by a short interpretation of this passage. At the end of each chapter are engage questions for you to ponder.

How we will use the book in our sessions: We will use the engage questions at end of each chapter for a facilitated discussion on a specific chapter.
