311 Book Study

Listed below are 3 books to be read – 1 per month. Participants will read the books on their own and will come together to discuss them in a 1 day/ hour long session the last Sunday in January, February & March.
1) “The Book of Joy”

Centering Your Life in Christ

In April of 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama’s home in India, to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering? “The Book of Joy”, offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecedented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye.
Sunday, January 28 (1 day only), 4:00-5:00pm – Room B120 | Cost: $10

2) “Searching for God in Godforsaken Times and Places”

Centering Your Life in Christ

This book is a heart-cry by one person whose honest journey through life has earned him a special kind of spiritual peace, a person who has profound insights to offer others seeking to live Christianly in a confusing, contradictory world. Penetrating and sensitive, questioning and honest, this book is for believers and seekers alike who are looking for a meaningful, real discussion of life’s duplicity.
Sunday, February 11 (1 day only), 4:00-5:00pm – Room B120 | Cost: $10

3) “The Book of Healing”

Centering Your Life in Christ

Within the ancient book of Job there are keys to inner healing. The enemy often uses seasons of suffering as opportunities to speak lies about God, yourself, and your situations. If not confronted, these lies can create life-long wounds. Traditionally, the book of Job is read as an account of suffering. But “The Book of Healing”, invites you to see this ancient Biblical text as an invitation to powerful inner healing through defeating the enemy.
Sunday, March 25 (1 day only), 4:00-5:00pm – Room B120 | Cost: $10
