Living Faithfully

Living Faithfully: Human Sexuality and the The United Methodist Church
This January, St. James will host a discussion group looking at human sexuality and the UMC. Facilitated by Mike Arny, this group will use as its text the recently published “Living Faithfully: Human Sexuality and the Methodist Church” (from Abingdon Press). The purpose of our study is to live into our calling to be the one body of Christ as we seek to understand each other, especially where we have pronounced differences. As such, our focus will be on hearing each other rather than convincing each other, and understanding each other rather than debating each other. Our group will have a covenant to guide our conversation.
Sessions will take place on Sundays January 6 through January 27 from 4:00 to 5:30 at the church.
