Oct 16: Mind the Gap / Form Follows Function
Oct 23: T/truth and Spiritual Imagination
How do you see the Bible? What does it represent to you? When you reach for it – if you reach for it – what do you expect to find? What do you hope to find? If you don’t reach for it, what is your hesitation?
We won’t be doing a deep dive into any particular Biblical book or text, but we will be chasing down – together – the questions that come up when we earnestly think about what we’re doing when we read the Bible.
Come and be a part of conversations about the Bible as a scrapbook or God’s text messages, about gaps in stories and how our spiritual imagination fills them, and about how the Bible shapes our ideas about T/truth.
