Saturday Evenings Continue
Our Saturday evening series take place every Saturday at 5:30 p.m. We start again Saturday, January 20.
Gospel of Mark--in Living Color
We start our new “semester” by watching amazing video on the Gospel of Mark. A dramatic reader/actor has recorded the entire sixteen chapters of Mark, and we're going to watch that--yes, in one sitting. In years past, I have asked EFM students to do this, because watching it in one sitting really does give you a sense of this first gospel. No, Matthew is not the first gospel. The first one written was Mark's gospel, and it's interesting that Mark doesn't bother himself with a birth narrative. We begin in rather a breathless way with the arrival of John the Baptist in the wilderness.
The following Saturday we'll gather (again, for supper at 5:30) in small discussion groups and have a conversation about our "take-aways" from the week before.
Soup in Crockpots for Supper
Our evening will start with supper. Bring a crockpot with homemade soup. I'll make sure we have some bread, and you can also bring desserts. We'll talk about what we will do starting in February.
Whatever we do, we're going to call Saturday evenings "Philip's Table," since we gather at table to eat, to discuss, and perhaps as we move forward, to have an informal communion together. If you have not yet joined us, please feel welcome to do that--and bring a buddy. All are welcome, no matter where you are on the spiritual journey.
