FROM THE INTERSECTION
Please join me beginning Tuesday the 17th of February at 10:00 am or Sunday the 22nd of February at 6:00 pm for Bible Study based on the book “Who Is This Man?” by John Ortberg ~ a perfect study for the month leading up to Easter.
Following is a the synopsis of the book and the study that goes with it:
Jesus’ impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn’t connect dots; and it is double-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history’s most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. From the Dark Ages to Post-Modernity he is the man who won’t go away. And yet...you can miss him in historical lists for many reasons: maybe the most obvious being the way he lived his life. He did not loudly and demonstrably defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge his brand or belief superior in all future books. His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him. He made history starting in a humble place, a spirit of love and acceptance, and slowing each person space to respond. His vision of life continues to haunt and challenge humanity. His influence has swept over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art, science, government, medicine, and education; he has taught humans about dignity, compassion, forgiveness and hope.
