Two weeks left on the current book series. This week, we’ll focus on Chapter 13 and a few examples of other people’s lives in the public square; how their efforts “mattered”. Names include:
- Harriet Tubman
- William Wilberforce
- Martin Luther King Jr.
- George W. Bush
- “Reasonable people” in reasonable places
Another easy read this week and you’re welcome to look ahead to next week’s assignment: Chapter 14 and the Epilogue
Speaking of next week. We’ll gather for breakfast at a location to be determined to wrap up the book series and have some fellowship before the start of Holy Week.
We won’t meet on Good Friday and after that, we’re going to do a quick 5-week study I’m calling “My Favorite Disciples”. I’ve asked a handful of individuals from our group to prepare one Friday over that 5-week span and share their thoughts on “their favorite disciple”. Some might reference the book, “Twelve Ordinary Men”, a study we’ve done a couple times. But more importantly, when we exit Holy Week and the celebration of the Resurrection, I want us to think about what was going on for the disciples. They were scattered, hunted, and full of doubts. How did they ever get it together?
The schedule for the next few weeks is posted on the SignUp Genius (click on image below):
Anyway, that’s looking ahead.
Dig into Chapter 13 this week and I look forward to leading the discussion on Friday. Have a great rest of the week. We’re meeting over Zoom or in-person at South Park.
