Tuesday Virtual Small Group

NEW: The Tuesday Night Zoom! Virtual Small Group will kick off a new book on 6 October and we wanted to send out the invite to everyone who’s popped in since March.  We’d love to have you join us.

“None Like Him” by Jen Wilkin. Deb says, “Don’t let the cover deceive you into thinking it’s a women’s book – read the reviews because I think it’s really for anyone.”

Email BenigniD@yahoo.com to join the group or for more information. We welcome participants from anywhere and from any background.

The Son-Rise Group is currently reading the new Max Lucado book: “How Happiness Happens: Finding Lasting Joy in a World of Comparison, Disappointment, and Unmet Expectations.”
 
 
 
 
 
Prophetic Lament
Starting the second week in October, a study of the book “Prophetic Lament: A Call for Justice in Troubled Times” by Soong-Chan Rah is a six week exploration of the Book of Lamentations. “Soong-Chan Rah’s prophetic exposition provides a biblical and theological lens for examining the church’s relationship with a suffering world. It critiques our success-centered triumphalism and calls us to repent of our hubris. And it opens up new ways to encounter each other. Hear the prophet’s lament as the necessary corrective for Christianity’s future.” ~ Amazon Descriptiont
 
Email BenigniD@yahoo.com to join the group or for more information. Day and time to be determined.
