Book Study

The Great Spiritual Migration

Heidi, Mike and Richard have organised a book study featuring “The Great Spiritual Migration” by Brian D. McLaren. Interested in joining a group? Here’s all you need to know:

Two Possible Times & Locations

Monday April 24th, 2017 @ 7.00 PM at Michael’s place in East Van (email michaelcookis@hotmail.com for address)

Saturday April 29th, 2017 @ 11.00am at the Cathedral

Further Details

Each group will meet every two weeks to discuss what we have read. Each group will have no more than 8-10 members participating in the discussion.

Next Steps

  1. Email Heidi at archer.hl@gmail.com to sign up for either group by Wednesday, April 12th.*
  2. Purchase or take out book from your local library.  Amazon, Chapters, or Regent College’s bookstore are good options to purchase the book from.  If you need a copy and cannot get a hold of one for any reason, let Heidi know.
  3. Read the Preface and Introduction before the first meeting on Monday, April 24th.  Those two sections are about 20 pages.
  4. Show up on the 24th!**

* The groups will be closed for joining by Friday, April 28th.

** Each book study group will be capped at 8-10 people.  This means we could have several awesome book studies going on at once!  And not to worry: Michael, Richard, and I will help you get started!  There are even discussion questions already in the book; so leading a discussion one week (or maybe more!) will be fairly straightforward.  Also, each group can decide which night they want to meet on, just in case Mondays doesn’t work for everyone’s schedule.

About This Study

Studies like this one offer a casual, relaxed, and intentional space for reflection and discussion – no matter what your starting point. Throughout the year we offer multiple opportunities to engage in discussion about about a topic related to Christian faith.

These groups provide time and a safe space to build community outside of Sunday evening Eucharist, and are opportunities to ask questions, nurture your faith, or find ways to live that faith everyday.
