The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became Man for no other purpose. It is even doubtful, you know, whether the whole universe was created for any other purpose.
– C. S. Lewis
In the twilight of his life, Parker J. Palmer, one of the last great elders of our day, penned these words:
“Clinging to what you already know is the path to an unlived life. So cultivate a beginner’s mind, walk straight into your not-knowing, and take the risk of failing and falling, again and again—then getting up to learn again and again. That’s the path to a life lived large in the service of love, truth, and justice.” – On the Brink of Everything
What if you were to turn with an open heart and a beginner’s mind toward the Bible for a fresh revelatory quest? Join Cherie and me for a third and final episode where, with confession and curiosity, we dive into our one-year journey through the Bible.
Above all, this episode is a final invitation to join us and a fellowship of like-hearted women and men around the globe for a one-year quest through the Bible, cover to cover, under the care and leadership of the wise guides at the Bible Project. We launch January 1, 2022. Register now to find out more. In order that we can build cohorts for participants shepherded by BGS Intensive alumni, the registration deadline is November 22.
For the Kingdom,
