Books For Agape
The Agape Ministry of the Diocese of Easton collects books to distribute to children of incarcerated parent(s). We will collect new or slightly used books for children ages 7 to 17 during the month of February.
Adult Forum 8:45 a.m.
Last fall, the Forum looked at the Book of Acts, seeing what kind of Church existed in the First Century of the Christian Era. We sought to apply lessons learned in those conversations to our Church, including Shrewsbury, today.
For the next several weeks, the Forum will be exploring two "provocative" books on the faith -- David Platt's "RADICAL - Taking Back your Faith from the American Dream, "and Diana Butler Bass's "The Practicing Congregation." [Both are available through Amazon, among other sources.]
Each challenges the limits the Church has set on itself, the "we've never done it that way" and "we can't afford it" and "they don't understand our tradition" and so many others.
Not unlike other much earlier eras, "things they are a'changing" -- communications, thoughts about spirituality, about rights, about justice, about relationships, and yet, at the same time, human hopes, dreams, sense of wonder, need for love and acceptance remain remarkably constant. Jesus addressed these issues 2,000 years ago, and the Church has sought to do so until the present ... sometimes in the forefront, sometimes lagging.
Please come and join us for stimulating and challenging conversations about the role and practices of what has become a "counter-cultural" Church. Fr. Steve
