Lenten Workshops 2014

Jeff Bethke wrote a blog that went viral on the internet.  It was called  “Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus”.  It seems that the things he has to say were very representative of many, if not most, of young people today and why young people today do not appear to be religious. This book is his attempt to bring people back to faith, but makes us question a lot of what we have been doing.

Many of us may find what he says controversial or it may echo what we are already thinking. It is, however, important stuff  and worthy of our study. When we stop growing, we die.

We will be doing two chapters a week and following the discussions laid out at the end of each chapter. Please have read the two chapters each week on the following schedule to get the most out of these workshops:
