Join The Divine Conspiracy!
What would it look like to have a church take Jesus at his word?
Do you believe that Jesus was not only wise and compassionate but also supremely intelligent?
Did Jesus mean what he said in the Sermon on the Mount?
This fall the entire church is going to dive headfirst into these questions and more through studying Dallas Willard’s The Divine Conspiracy. This significant book takes a close look at Jesus’ teaching in his most famous sermon. As a church, we will walk together both through the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) and through Willard’s book.
There will be several ways that you can participate in this, and our hope is that you make space in your life to engage this material deeply, both personally and with others in your church. Here is some of what we will be offering:
- Weekly sermons using both Jesus’ words and a chapter from Willard’s book.
- Growing in Faith offerings that include:
* A class discussing an abridged version of the book.
* Wired Word working with the themes of the book.
* A class led by various pastors going chapter-by-chapter through the book.
* A podcast where you get to hear some midweek thoughts on the book.
This is going to be a great opportunity for personal spiritual growth as well as church-wide growth, and its strength is found in your personal commitment to learning.
