Red State, Blue State….do we have to choose?

Welcome to a new study that we’ll kick off this Friday, APR 13th.  Our new book is called “Jesus Outside the Lines” by REV. Scott Sauls.  Hopefully, you’ve already picked the book and read Chapter 1 which is our focus for this week.  The chapter is titled, “Red State, Blue State” and guides us in some Christian thoughts around having to choose (or not) between two majority political parties in our country.

What did Jesus have to say about choosing sides in a political debate?  What did he do?  One example we’ll touch on might be familiar from our last study if we look at Judas (Iscariot) and Matthew (Roman tax collector).  Certainly those two disciples represented two opposing viewpoints of the political spectrum of the time.

Jason Schubert will lead this week.  Don’t worry if you haven’t read or purchased the book yet.  Your participation in the dialog is always welcome regardless!

See you in the morning at the Cornwell Center.  Please gather starting at 7:30 am.  Jason kicks off the lesson at 7:45 am.

Peace!

  1. Looking forward to the discussion. I’m sure the political views within our own group vary widely, depending on the subject. The book, thus far, is an engaging exploration of this dynamic. Great choice!
