This Lent, nearly 80 Plymouth members have gathered in homes across Seattle and Mercer Island to meet and discuss Marcus Borg’s final book, Convictions: How I Learned What Matters Most. A deeply personal book, Borg describes his core convictions about Christianity that emerged over the course of his life and in his career as a scholar and theologian. In our sessions, we have tackled such questions as:
These conversations have led to deep sharing about our Christian faith and what it means to us personally and as a church community. Gatherings have provided a place to share a diversity of experiences and beliefs which have enriched individual understandings of what it means to live a life of faith. Our faith is deeper and our relationships with one another are enriched as a result of this small group experience. I am so grateful for insights I have received from my group throughout Lent. As Director of Faith Formation, I am thankful for the positive response to this series and to the Adult Education Board for their help to make it happen. Look for future offerings coming to a neighborhood near you! -Jennifer Castle
