NEW! LIMITED SERIES:  Learning the Language of God: Experiecing God through Lectio Divina and Examen
Led by United Methodist Pastor Ron Young (retired), Learning the Language of God isn’t so much about our learning “what the Bible says,” or “what this scholar says the Bible says,” but what does God say to us through our reading the Bible. The whole purpose of learning the language of God is to be transformed in the inner person. Beginning Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at 6pm, this 5-week opportunity, conducted on Zoom, is a practicum of learning and practicing the language of God with others. The resources needed are: A Bible (translation, not a paraphrase), a composition notebook, pen/pencil, and index cards. RSVP by contacting the church office (897-6449) or emailing apsarks@stmumc.org.
