Join us in June as we discuss Faith Unraveled by Rachel Held Evans. Eighty years after the Scopes Monkey Trial made a spectacle of Christian fundamentalism and brought national attention to her hometown, Evans faced a trial of her own when she began to have doubts about her faith. In order for her faith to survive, Rachel realizes, it must adapt to change and evolve. In a changing cultural environment where new ideas seem to threaten the safety and security of the faith, Faith Unraveled is a fearlessly honest story of survival.
Join us in May as we discuss former NBC newsman and Meet the Press moderator David Gregory‘s book “How’s Your Faith?” The longtime journalist probes various religious traditions to better understand his own faith and answer life’s most important questions: Who do we want to be? What do we believe?
While David was covering the White House, he had the unusual experience of being asked by President George W. Bush “How’s your faith?”
David’s answer was just emerging. Raised by a Catholic mother and a Jewish dad, he had a strong sense of Jewish cultural and ethnic identity, but no real belief—until his marriage to a Protestant woman of strong faith inspired him to explore his spirituality for himself and his growing family.
This month the ECQ Book Club will be discussing Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz Weber. This book is both a consideration of how we we encounter God’s grace and the personal memoir. The author’s rich and often funny personal stories perfectly illuminate the theological reflections that are linked to the church year. Please join us for what is sure to be a great discussion .
