Beginning on Wednesday, January 16th there will be a 7-week DVD study of the book The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others (10th Anniversary Edition) by Scot McKnight. We will meet each Wednesday in the Gathering Place, from 1:30 - 3:00.
This book contends that spiritual formation for Jesus is centered on the Shema - an affirmation recited morning and night by all devout Jews, found in Deuteronomy 6:4-5 - "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength" - coupled with this command from Leviticus 19:18 - "Love your neighbour as yourself." By linking these two commands together as the greatest of all the commandments of Judaism, Jesus affirms that love of God must be lived out in the world as love of others. This study will help us examine our own spiritual formation and practice in light of this Jesus Creed.
Copies of the book are available from the church for $23, or from
