Summer Book Study
The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind,
by Cynthia Bourgeault
Sundays, August 9, 16 and 30 – 12:30 pm
Pastoral Associate, Matthew Leaycraft, will visit us to facilitate a three-session study of The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind, by Cynthia Bourgeault, on Sundays August 9, 16 and 30 following the 11:15 am service.
Cynthia Bourgeault is an Episcopal priest, retreat leader and author of several books. The Wisdom Jesus, published in 2008, has been an influential book that offers an innovative exploration of the life and teachings of Jesus. Bourgeault invites us to consider Jesus and Christian practice as an eternal force for the transformation of our consciousness at the deepest level of our interior being. So our spiritual path is based on more than our knowledge; it also reaches for union with the divine, an ongoing process characterized as “wisdom,” in which we live more and more in and with Christ.
The book is divided in three parts and each part will be discussed at a session. The material deserves a considered engagement, so reading ahead is helpful. Everyone, though, is welcome to participate in the discussion.
