god and the pandemic

God and the Pandemic

Beginning on Wednesday evening September 9, there will be a Bible Study called "God and the Pandemic" at 6 PM on the front lawn of the church.   Please come and bring a Bible and a chair.  We will use the latest book by N. T. Wright, entitled God and the Pandemic, which is available through Amazon and other booksellers.  During this 5 week study,  we will wrestle with what the Old Testament, Jesus, and other New Testament authors teach us during difficult times, including the pandemic we are currently going through.   Warning: the "easy answers" are neither biblical nor consistent with human experience.   Come prepared to wrestle with what the Bible does and does not say to us during these unusual times.  For more information, see Godandthepandemic.com.  Contact Pastor Jonathan if you are interested in being a part of this discussion.  


c.s. lewis study group

C.S. Lewis Study Group

If you would like to be a part of a C.S. Lewis study  group, please email Pastor Jonathan at jmarlowe@mtzionumc.net.  This is a study group based in High Point, but we are meeting by Zoom on the first Thursday of each month at 7 PM.  We don't assume any previous knowledge of C.S. Lewis, just a desire to read and learn. Our purpose is simply "to deepen our Christian faith by a study of the life and works of C.S. Lewis."   This study group is for all who wish a better union of heart and mind regarding the classic Christian faith.  At our first meeting on Sept. 3 at 7 PM, we will discuss C.S. Lewis' book, Surprised by Joy.  If you don't have time to read this book before the first meeting, you can still participate just by listening if you would like.
