"We Make the Road by Walking" by Brian D. McLaren
From the Introduction: “What we all want is pretty simple, really. We want to be alive. To feel alive. Not just to exist, but to thrive, to live out loud, walk tall, breathe free… The quest for aliveness is the best thing about religion, I think. When people say, ‘I’m spiritual,’ what they mean, I think, is simple: ‘I’m seeking aliveness.’”
This book was written for those seeking a fresh way to experience and practice their faith; “to help individuals and groups seize the moment and walk joyfully into the future together.” The title is meant to suggest that faith is meant to be a path; a way out of old and destructive patterns into new and creative ones.
Over a five week period, we will be discussing a small portion of the book designed specifically to be read during Lent (from start to finish, the book has 52+ chapters – one per week for a year). Brian McLaren, one of the foremost Christian theologians and authors of our day, invites us to explore what a difference an honest, living, growing faith can make in our world today. We hope our time together will inspire you to continue reading.
We invite you to come each week unprepared. The chapters are meant to be read aloud in 10-12 minutes, and we will begin by having volunteers read the chapter aloud. Scripture, discussion, and prayer will round out our hour together.
Books may be purchased online and are available from the church office for $15.
