Mercy to Manna 
Six Week Study- September 20- October 25
Sunday Mornings @ 11:15-12:15 on Zoom

Manna and Mercy is a six week bible study using Daniel Erlander’s book Manna and Mercy.  This 100- page hand printed paraphrase of the bible, from Genesis to Revelation is a graphic novel of the Bible written with imagination, clarity, humor, and cartoons.  Built around the twin themes of food sharing and forgiveness, it helps us to look at scripture with new eyes and rediscover how it can become a means of life and grace rather than destruction and death. The study will focus on the bible story through the very specific lens of the Jesus Story. That would seem to be an obvious lens for a Christian to use to approach Scripture.  In fact, the lens of the Jesus story opens up a radical re-reading of the text, as Erlander warns in the introduction: “Therefore, parts of the Bible come clearly into focus — those parts which envision a just, merciful, peaceful, inclusive, and nonhierarchical society. Other parts recede — those which tend toward ethnocentrism, exclusion, patriarchy, and domination.”

Pastor’s  Book Class- Zoom

The Great Spiritual Migration   Brian D. McLaren

The Christian story, from Genesis until now, is fundamentally about people on the move—outgrowing old, broken religious systems and embracing new, more redemptive ways of life.  It’s time to move again.
I first heard Brian McLaren at a Conference on the Church in the 21st century along with Diana Butler Bass, Marcus Borg, and Dominic Crossan in 2006 in Portland,Oregon. I most recently heard him at The Festival of Homiletics in 2017 in San Antonio. He was a pastor of a large megachurch in Maryland, and has become a noted speaker and writer on the church today.
Books are now available in the church office. Please contact Mike Kaase (mkaase@saintmartins.org) if you would like a book. ($12.99 paperback)
Contact Pastor John by email to receive a link to the Zoom class.
