For several months now, I’ve been pondering what to do for a lenten study. In preparation for tomorrow’s sermon, I had to get out my copy of To Love as God Loves by Roberta Bondi and was reminded of what a great, easily accessible book it is. It’s a relatively short book with six chapters. I think it will be great for a six week lenten study beginning Thursday, March 10, 2011 (the day after Ash Wednesday) at 6:30 pm. In the book Bondi explores Christian love and our relationship with God and other people from a biblical perspective that is informed by the holy men and women of the early church. I heartily recommend it whether you can attend the study or not. The book is available from amazon.com for $13.85 in paperback and $9.99 in the Kindle edition. I’ll be calling Cokesbury on Monday to see if I can get it any cheaper. You can order your own or let us know you want us to order one for you when you sign up. I’ll pass around a sign-up sheet tomorrow and the following Sunday. I’m working on getting an online form, but for now you can just shoot me an email at email@example.com.
