Join us this Fall for the New Jersey Barth Reading Group

For those in the New Jersey/Central Jersey/Jersey Shore area, please join me and others interested in theology each week for a discussion of the topic: "The Missional Church: Its Gathering, Upbuilding, and Sending"

Our first meeting is set for Monday, September 22nd, from 10:30am-Noon at the Monmouth Church of Christ. We will meet each Monday at this time in the church library.

Our guide for this topic will be a weekly reading of the following paragraphs in Karl Barth's magnum opus, the Church Dogmatics:

§62, “The Holy Spirit and the Gathering of the Christian Community” (CD IV,1)
§67, “The Holy Spirit and the Upbuilding of the Christian Community” (CD IV, 2)
§72, “The Holy Spirit and the Sending of the Christian Community.” (CD IV, 3)

Everyone is invited and you don't need special training or theological knowledge to join the group and be helped by these readings - they are accessible, readable, and theologically rich. Please join us and share this post with your friends!
