Beginning this fall our Small Group Ministry has a new name – Connection Groups! These weekly gatherings of about 10 church folk provide the opportunity for you to find a connection to others in our congregation through fellowship, sharing of concerns and prayers, and study. Each group often chooses their own materials for study, but once or twice a year every group is invited to join in a common study across the whole ministry.
Common Study for Fall 2022:
Sacred Signposts: Words, Water and Other Acts of Resistance
by Benjamin J. Dueholm
In our increasingly secular world, what good are the church’s sacred practices, and why do they even matter anymore? With insight, wit, and unsparing honesty, Benjamin Dueholm in this book explores the crucial place and power of Christian practices in ordinary, everyday life. Drawing on modern-day realities and ancient roots, firsthand experience and centuries of history, pop culture and high theology, Dueholm offers a visionary account of the critical, radical, life-affirming role that seven “sacred signposts” play in today’s post-Christian world.
