Making Sense of the Christian Faith- An Invitation

Hello to all!  I know it has been a while since I last wrote in my blog!  The reason I write today is because we are starting a new emphasis at Ascension.  Together, many of us will be reading and discussing David Lose's book:  Making Sense of the Christian Faith.  It is a book about the basics of Christian theology.

The reason I recommend this book is not necessarily because I think that everybody need to "brush up on the basics"  (though some of us do and that's o.k.!) but because there are a whole lot of people in our world, in our neighborhood, perhaps even in the same room who have questions about what we believe and why we believe it.  We should probably have a response for them- a response that might even help them make sense of this world and of life in general.

This is why Making Sense of the Christian Faith is such a great book.  It is a written in a simple question and answer style and it has great content.

So I invite you to join us.  Get the book and be a part of a small group (there are books, small group leader guides and discussion starter dvd's available in the church office) or come join us on Sunday mornings at Ascension.  We will meet in Founders Hall at 9:30.  I am also trying to put together a group of people at 11am as well.

I will also be sending out a blog about this once a week.  Please feel free to unsubscribe to this blog if you don't plan to be a part of this conversation.  You will not offend me at all and I would hate to thing that I am sending you emails that you would rather not read.

If you have any other questions please let me know by emailing me at

Here is a short video Aidan and I made in preparation for the class:
