Percolate (Adult Formation)
Percolate has spent the last of winter and this past spring reading Original Blessing by Matthew Fox. This book was indeed relevant in our congregation’s pursuit to become a Just Peace church. Matthew Fox moves us from a Fall-Redemption view of Christianity to a Creation Centered one that celebrates beauty, compassion and justice. It was a liberating read.
Our next endeavor over the summer will be Marcus Borg’s Days of Awe and Wonder: How to Be a Christian in the Twenty-first Century. This book was written two years after his death and is a selection some of his most enduring and insightful writings, including many never before published works. There is a forward by his wife, Marianne Borg, also an Episcopal priest, and an afterward by Barbara Brown Taylor that is the actual eulogy she presented at his memorial service in 2015.
As usual all are welcome, whether or not you’ve read the book. We meet around 8:30 before the worship service and the coffee will be percolating.
