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 Wednesday of the month at 6:00 PM in the church for a group discussion.

 

 

The book selection for June is Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better by Brant Hansen. 

 

Not entitled to get angry? Really?

 

It’s a radical, provocative idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth. It is the number one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says, Christians have not been taught out of it.

 

As it turns out, giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do.

 

In Unoffendable readers will find something of immeasurable value—a concrete, practical way to live life with less stress. They’ll adjust their expectations to fit human nature and replace perpetual anger with refreshing humility and gratitude.

 

If you would like  to order you a copy of the book,  please contact the church office at (715) 749-3225 no later than June 6.
