In a couple of weeks we will start up our book study group again. The first book we studied (3 years ago) was The Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg. We found his writing and his approach so helpful that we are going back to study more of his work. Even if you are not able to attend the study session read the book anyway. Go to Amazon.ca and order Marcus Borg's Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time: The Historical Jesus and the Heart of Contemporary Faith.
Why do we need to read such a book? Why do we need to know who Jesus was? And Is? Because we cannot be the church if we don't know what he stood for and what he really taught and preached.
The book is a very helpful and engaging read. It will be another guide for us as we continue our visioning work as Aylmer United Church.
