ESCHATOLOGY OF LUKE’S GOSPEL

Passage to read and study  Luke 17:20-37 

All are welcome!


END TIMES – WHAT DOES LUKE’S GOSPEL SAY?

We all hear about what are called the “end times.” Novels have been written claiming to be based on Biblical prophecy and the internet is full of all kinds of claims about “end times.” But what does Luke’s Gospel actually say about eschatology, the fancy theological word for “end times?” Join us on Sunday, October 6 for a lively and provocative discussion. Follows our pot luck lunch at Noon.

Book Selection for Oct. 27

Ordinary Grace 

by William Kent Krueger

​​​​​​​
“A respected mystery writer turns his attention to the biggest mystery of all: God. An award-winning author for his long-running Cork O’ Connor series, Krueger aims higher and hits harder with a standalone novel that shares much with his other work.... 'the awful grace of God,' as it manifests itself within the novel, would try the faith of the most devout believer. Yet, ultimately, the world of this novel is one of redemptive grace and mercy, as well as unidentified corpses and unexplainable tragedy. A novel that transforms narrator and reader alike.” Source: Kirkus Reviews (starred)


Book Selection for Nov. 17

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion,

by Jonathan Haidt

Pantheon Books, NY 2012


A brave, brilliant, and eloquent exploration of the most important issues of our time. Penetrating, yet accessible. Profound discussion. “Moral systems are interlocking sets of values, virtues, norms, practices, identities, institutions, technologies and evolved psychological mechanisms that work together to suppress or regulate self-interest and make cooperative societies possible.” (page 270)
