BIBLE LISTENING GATHERINGS
Bible Listening Gatherings are a time for friends to gather and listen to the Scriptures. As Jeffrey Arthurs asserts, "Let the reader beware! God may show up and we may encounter Him. Hearing and seeing a reader embody the text is a different experience than silently pondering a script in the privacy of the study...Words written are caged; but when performed well, they fly."
60-90 mins of listening, experiencing & reflecting God's Word followed by sharing a meal together!
AUDIO BOOK CLUB
The Just Show Up Book Club exists to encourage our friends to read good literature for growth and enjoyment. As CS Lewis said, "But in reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. Like the night sky in the Greek poem, I see with a myriad eyes, but it is still I who see. Here, as in worship, in love, in moral action, and in knowing, I transcend myself; and am never more myselft than when I do. (C.S. Lewis, An experiment in Criticism)." The Just Show Up Book Club hopes to be a gathering for people who want to engage in what C.S. Lewis describes but have trouble finding the time. Essentially, it's a book club with no homework.
60 mins of listening, reading & learning together from renown Christian thinkers/leaders.
