Entering the Passion discussion begins March 1

How do you face risk?  The events of Holy Week brought one risk after another for Jesus.  How might his choices provide insight as you face risks in your life?

Join this discussion of Amy-Jill Levine's book Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner's Guide to Holy WeekLevine is Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School.  We will listen to a short segment of the DVD to set up the discussion; our conversation will draw from what each of us have discovered in the book.  While it is not required that one read the chapter before coming, reading ahead will assist our conversation.

Each of the six weeks focuses on a different event that we recall through readings, ritual and worship in the week before Easter ("Holy Week").

Jerusalem: Risking Reputation
The Temple: Risking Righteous Anger
Teachings: Risking Challenge
The First Dinner: Risking Rejection
The Last Supper: Risking the Loss of Friends
Gethsemane: Risking Temptation

Join the discussion, led by Bill Lamb, each Sunday morning in the Hoffmann Room, 9:30-10:15AM.  Come to as many sessions as you are able to attend.  Bill has five copies of the book, or you may purchase it as an eBook or on paper.
