Dec 6: Women’s Book Club

What kind of connection do you have with Jesus? Has that relationship evolved over time? Join us as we explore one person’s roundabout road to faith.

Sarah Bessey

Sarah Bessey, author of Jesus Feminist and Out of Sorts.

On Tuesday, December 6, we meet for a social evening of conversation. We’ll be discussing chapter 2 of Sarah Bessey’s book Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith.

In chapter 2, Sarah describes her changing relationship with Jesus. As a child, she attended a traditional church and came to know Jesus through the well-known Bible stories. As a young adult starting out on her own, she came to see Jesus as irrelevant and not part of her life. That changed suddenly when she was introduced to a charismatic church, and she found herself among people who seemed to relate to Jesus in a much more immediate and personal way than she had ever known. It was here that she felt she really became a Christian.

But that was not the end of the journey. Sarah later moved to another church, an “industrial church” as she calls it, with yet another approach to understanding Jesus. On this roundabout journey, she finds herself thinking deeply about what parts of her faith are important, what are essential, and what can be discarded.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday evening, December 6 for an evening of friendly, engaging conversation. We’ll begin with a chapter summary for those who have not read the text. All women are welcome. Bring a friend!
