Book Study: Sabbath As Resistance by Walter Brueggemann
God has commanded us "to remember the Sabbath and to keep it holy". Renowned Old Testament scholar and author, Walter Brueggemann, discusses what that means for us and our culture. He shows how the 4th commandment relates to both the 1st and the 10th commandments.
Mondays in the Blue Room at 6:30 pm: October 11, 18, 25 and
November 1, 8, and 15
Cost: $20 for the study guide

Join Susan Buell in-person on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. in the Blue Room to study the Sabbath as Resistance. Walter Brueggemann writes that the Sabbath is not simply about keeping rules but rather about becoming a whole person and restoring a whole society.

You are welcome to join the class but will need to purchase your study guide independently.
