The Study and Discussion Group will resume on Thursday, September 19, at 10:00 AM, and it will continue to meet weekly on Thursdays at 10:00 AM.

The group will take a look at Emily C. Heath’s book, Courageous Faith: How to Rise and Resist in a Time of Fear (Pilgrim Press, 2017).

Heath is the Senior Pastor of the Congregational Church in Exeter (UCC), in Exeter, New Hampshire.

From the Pilgrim Press:

For Christians, resistance is written right into our baptismal vows. Following Christ means resisting oppression and evil wherever we might find it. Doing that work requires us to first rise up, face our fears, and cultivate courage that can sustain us for the journey.

Take the resurrection journey from a place of fear to a place of action as Emily C. Heath weaves together wisdom from Reformed theology, recovery communities, social justice visionaries, and more.

You can order Courageous Faith from the Pilgrim Press, Amazon, or your preferred retailer. If you need help ordering the book, feel free to call Shelly in the church office if you would like her to order a copy for you.
