Lent Wednesday Study Book
Contrast Community: Practicing the Sermon on the Mount by James Bailey (2013). This will be our focus for Lent Wednesdays, co-led by the author and Pastor David.
No portion of Scripture has been more influential in renewing church and society than Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. This book invites us into a transformative engagement with the text, the cultural context, and its meaning for us today. Its approach challenges faith communities not only to study the Sermon on the Mount but to begin practicing these radical teachings of Jesus.
All sessions on Wednesdays, 5:45-6:45 in the Hillside Room:
Feb 25: Freed from Nursing Anger (Matt 5:21-26)
Mar 4: Challenged to Value Women (Matt 5:27-32)
Mar 11: Trusted Truth-Tellers (Matt 5:33-37)
Mar 18: Risking Non-Violent Power (Matt 5:38-42)
Mar 25: Open to Enemies (Matt 5:43-48)
Jim Bailey is Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa. We look forward to this rich opportunity for learning and growing in faith together! Books are not required for the sessions but will provide helpful insights for these and future conversations. Books are available at a discounted rate of $15 – order through the church office (722-3381) by Tuesday, Feb 10.
