Book/Bible Study with Pastor Will
"Born to Be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life"
Mondays: Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26 & Nov. 2, 9 at 7 PM via Zoom
Thursdays: Oct. 8, 15, 22, 29 & Nov. 5, 12 at 10 AM in person (limit of 10 people)
We’ll hold Dacher Keltner’s book, "Born to Be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life", in one hand and the Bible in the other. We’ll start with the relation between faith and science. We’ll then connect what we learn in his book about kindness, love, compassion, awe, and gratitude to specific passages in the Bible. The goal is to see how the Bible teaches us and the Spirit helps us to live these very emotions that we are “hardwired” or born to live. This is especially pertinent in a divisive time when they can seem in such short supply.

Bryan Stevenson’s powerful and true story about the Equal Justice Initiative confronts many societal issues we see daily in the news and on social media. As Christians, how do we hold justice and mercy together? How do we stand up to injustices in our world, especially those that affect our siblings of color?
