We will continue our discussion on, Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers by Christopher Hall. We will explore alternatives to how we read scripture. Hopefully This will open door ways in your imaginations and reinvigorate your love of God's Word. C.S. Lewis says of reading the ancient Fathers and their works, " “If you join at eleven o’clock a conversation which began at eight you will often not see the real bearing of what is said. Remarks which seem to you very ordinary will produce laughter or irritation and you will not see why— the reason, of course, being that the earlier stages of the conversation have given them a special point. In the same way sentences in a modern book which look quite ordinary may be directed ‘at’ some other book; in this way you may be led to accept what you would have indignantly rejected if you knew its real significance.” We will meet the last Monday of Each month at St. James AME at 7 p.m.. Our first meeting will cover the introduction and the first chapter. We will not rush through this book but work through it chapter by chapter.
