ABC's OF FAITH

 

ABC's of Faith was formed out of a desire to have an ongoing opportunity for Adult Bible Conversations (ABC's).  The study material changes from session to session.  Group leaders strive to select material that allows participants to attend as they are able so that missing a gathering doesn't exclude anyone from joining the conversation. 

 

For the summer months, ABC's of Faith will be a book club format. Those interested can read the book selection at their own pace.  We'll gather on the 4th Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM in the church for a group discussion.

 

 

The selection for July is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.

 

A story of love that won't let go - no matter what!

California’s gold country, 1850. A time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep. Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Sold into prostitution as a child, she survives by keeping her hatred alive. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside.  
 
Then she meets Michael Hosea, a man who seeks his Father’s heart in everything. Michael obeys God’s call to marry Angel and to love her unconditionally. Slowly, day by day, he defies Angel’s every bitter expectation, until despite her resistance, her frozen heart begins to thaw.  
 
But with her unexpected softening comes overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. And so Angel runs. Back to the darkness, away from her husband’s pursuing love, terrified of the truth she no longer can deny: Her final healing must come from the One who loves her even more than Michael does…the One who will never let her go.  
 
A powerful retelling of the story of Gomer and Hosea, Redeeming Love is a life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love.
