Sacred Text Reading Group (via Video Conference)
Date(s) - 05/23/2020
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A weekly online sacred text reading group with Reverend Amy
Using a spiritual-practice approach, in each session we will explore a different brief scriptural text in depth. The aims of the sessions are educational (learning something about the texts and traditions), spiritual/moral (discovering what the texts ask of us), and community-building (getting to know each other better). I’ll have a version of the text available to share; “bring” your own if you like. All are welcome, as are your suggestions of future texts.
On May 23, our text will be Saying 18 from the Gospel of Thomas. This book, which overlaps in many places with the canonical gospels, is a non-canonical “sayings gospel” that fascinates many spiritual seekers due to its similarities to Eastern religions. The entire text is easily found online.
