Please RSVP.

Scriptural Reasoning

Wednesday, September 25
6:30 p.m. in the parish hall
Pastor Larson and Fatih Ozcan of Houston’s Blue Mosque will give an orientation to the Scriptural Reasoning program. Interested participants will register for the monthly program. Scriptural reasoning was developed at Cambridge University, UK, and has gone global as a wonderful and practical way of sharing our scriptures in small groups. In a group no larger than 14, half Christian and half-Muslim, we read similar texts from the Bible and the Qur’an side by side and share what they mean to us. Light food and good fellowship accent the experience of growing together as Abrahamic cousins in faith and friendship. You can register for the monthly small group programs—hosted in homes or elsewhere—after the orientation on September 25.
