Seekers Book Study Small Group

The Seeker’s Book Study explores our spiritual side via the reading of books by progressive authors. Carl Jung noted that when religious people move into the middle-age, they struggle with the image of God ‘up there’ in heaven.  This class explores other metaphors for the divine which resonate better for those who have gone beyond the God image of our younger selves.  Specifically, this semester we will explore Christian mysticism by reading and discussing Richard Rohr’s “The Naked Now” and Cynthia Bourgeault’s “The Wisdom Jesus.” We will also go beyond what the authors write by discussing our own spiritual experience and how it relates to each week’s reading.  Class meets on Sunday mornings at 9AM starting Feb. 5th.  For our first class we will discuss the preface and the first two chapters of “The Naked Now.”  All our welcome.
