Maidencreek Church, 261 Main St Blandon, will hold Lenten Awakenings Sundays from 4:00 – 5:30 PM from February 18 – March 18. We will be discussing the book Fear of the Other: No Fear in Love by William H. Willimon. In his introduction, Willimon remembers a translation from Greek class “1 John 4:15 Perfect love casts out fear. I recall the professor saying ‘In 1 John, the Greek is easy to read, but its message is hard to live.’” As we read this small 90 page book, we will we will discuss some tough questions: How do you balance self-preservation with unconditional welcome? Who am I called to love? How might Christ, who welcomed me, call me to make the” Other” my neighbor. How can we redefine the “Other”?
Please make sure to purchase your own book prior to the first event on February 18th.
Pastor Sara and Gary Hertzog will lead this study. Please call 610.926.3907 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend so we can prepare.
