What our church is reading
We're working through several books in our church right now. 1. We're doing a Route 66 study on Wednesday nights. Each Wednesday we survey another Bible book. We're on Jonah this Wednesday night. I start each class with, "Well, Jeremiah (or whatever book we're studying) is my favorite book." God's word is incredibly powerful and rips apart our assumptions and changes us. When we read it again with open hearts, we find we are not reading as much as it is reading us.
3. Our Garnett staff is reading Seven Practices of Effective Ministry by Andy Stanley, Reggie Joiner, Lane Jones.
4. Finally, one of our church classes is reading Slaves, Women, and Homosexuals to help us with reading and interpreting Scripture on roles of women in church and life.
