The Great Spiritual Migration Adult Class
March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This class, taught by Pastor Ernie Hess, meets on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Oak Room of the Celebration Center. While reading McLaren’s book, The Great Spiritual Migration (2017) is of great benefit, his essentials ideas will be presented for discussion each week, so reading the book is not necessary to participate in the class. People are welcome to join the class at any time.
“Brian McLaren, a leading voice in contemporary religion, argues that— notwithstanding the dire headlines about the demise of faith and drop in church attendance—Christian faith is not dying. Rather, it is embarking on a once-in-an-era spiritual shift. For millions, the journey has already begun.
Drawing from his work as global activist, pastor, and public theologian, McLaren challenges readers to stop worrying, waiting, and indulging in nostalgia, and instead, to embrace the powerful new understandings that are reshaping the church.
On Wednesday, March 7, we will discuss chapter 1 of McLaren’s book, titled Crisis by the Palo Verde Tree, pp. 19 – 33.
