Fall Book Study, Thursdays,
October 19 – November 9


Join us at St. Barnabas on Thursday nights for a Book Study on Brian McLaren’s The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian. Are you among the growing numbers of Christians who are moving away from defining their spirituality by a list of beliefs and toward a way of life defined by love? Have you noticed your image of God shifting from a violent taskmaster toward the image of the renewing Spirit at work in our world? Are you attracted to thinking of the faithful as people dedicated to healing the planet, building peace, overcoming poverty and injustice, and collaborating with people of other faiths to build a better world for everyone? If so (or if you’re just interested in discussing this major spiritual movement in the world today), then this book study is for you!

When: 6:15 – 8:00 p.m. Thursday evenings from October 19 – November 9
Where: St. Barnabas’ Episcopal Church, 301 Trinity Ave., Arroyo Grande
Who: Adults (high school and older): all are welcome and childcare is provided!
What: light meal, knowledgeable leaders, group discussions
