2022 Book Study
Book Study Starting Jan 2022:
A Bigger Table:
Building Messy, Authentic, and Hopeful Spiritual Community
We are wired for connection – having a place where we belong; a space where our true, authentic selves may be seen and valued – community.
John Povlovitz offer a vision of such a space in his book “A Bigger Table: Building Messy, Authentic, and Hopeful Spiritual Community.” In this book, John talks of what it can look like to have authentic relationships that are built on the premise of Radical Hospitality, Total Authenticity, True Diversity, and Agenda-Free Community.
One reviewer writes, “What does it look like to love boldly like Jesus in a world that is a polarized mess? A Bigger Table is vitally relevant as it both challenges and encourages us to explore what can happen if we begin to live a life of radical hospitality…This book is a must-read for everyone-on any side of the political and religious spectrum-who desires to be a part of letting love win in our broken world. – Sheri Faye Rosendahl, writer and activist.
I invite you to join me on Thursday evenings, beginning January 27th at 7:00 PM as we consider what that might look like in our church/community. I anticipate lively conversation, deep questioning, and new possibilities as we consider what “a bigger table” might look like in our midst. Order your book today!
