Book Study on “The Wisdom Jesus – Transforming Heart and Mind – a new Perspective on Christ and His Message” by Cynthia Bourgeault to be offered starting in mid-October.
Recently I mentioned to Bev Allen that Don and I have been reading this book. She enthusiastically replied, “I love this book! It’s one of my all-time favorites!” I said I thought it would be a good study book for a group and she said she would gladly assist me with getting that going.
Here’s a blurb from the jacket cover:
“If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Cynthia Boutgeault is a masterful guide to Jesus’s vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teaching for yourself.”
From Chapter I : “… we’re living in an era right now which some would call a major paradigm shift, where there’s an opportunity as perhaps there hasn’t been before to really open up the core questions again and ask, “What is it that we mean by ‘Christianity’? What is the filter that we’re looking through? Who is this the Master that we profess and confess in our life as we call ourselves Christian?”
Bev and I are so looking forward to having others join us as we read and discuss this eye, mind and heart opening book.
We propose to meet after church on Sundays (assuming we are continuing to meet in person), after fellowship time.
Please join us!
Nancy Rhoades and Bev Allen
