Ascension Lutheran Church

Bible Study:

The Spring 2020 Bible Study will be held in the summer on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. More information will be made available in the coming weeks.  The group will study the series by Amy-Jill Levine, Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a  Controversial Rabbi.  

 

Book Discussion Group:

The next book group will be held on Tuesday, July 14 at 6:30 p.m. (a simultaneous in-person and Zoom meeting).  The group will be discussing Loving Jesus by Mark Allen Powell.  Powell postulates that the essence of spirituality is loving God.  The Bible directs us not simply to obey God, to trust in God, to follow God, and to serve God – but to trust in God.  Can we learn to love God?  Powell encourages followers to revisit their faith not by blazing in religious enthusiasm, but by harboring a steadier flame and deeper commitment.  The book can be found in Amazon in hard copy or digital format.
