Member Church Book Study

Event Information

8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our third and final Book study of the 21-22 year! Accessible Gospel, Inclusive Worship by our own Barbara J. Newman.

Join Associate Director of Church Services, Rev. Dr. LaTonya Penny in exploring (or re-experiencing) Barb’s idea-packed book. In the text, the focus is first on how to introduce someone to Jesus who may think, behave and interact with the world differently than you do, and then thinking about what it looks like to worship together with a wide range of abilities and needs for support. As with our other two book study groups, this will be a weekly Zoom meeting that lasts one hour.¬† To see videos of Barbara speaking, click on the link above which will direct you to a page honoring her life and legacy. We miss her dearly since her passing in September of 2020 and are honored to carry on the work of making the Gospel accessible and worship inclusive for people of all abilities. Join us!
