Rachel Held Evans: I find Jesus' words incredibly disruptive and disconcerting

We had a great time at the first event and collected a good bit of food for Second Harvest Food Bank. For the second meeting we will discuss an interview with Rachel Held Evans in which she says she finds Jesus' words "incredibly disruptive and disconcerting." Rachel talks about her new book on Biblical interpretation and her differing view than the Fundamentalist perspective she grew up with. 


We won't address her political statements, there are other groups for that. :) 


Make sure you read the FAQ's to make sure we are all on the same page being respectful to each other while we discuss this "sensitive"issue.


Listen to the interview here. The interview ends at 31:50.


We will be meeting at the Hippie Kitchen (Inside)
3741 JEFFERSON HWY
JEFFERSON, LA 70121
Wednesday, September 26, 2018 7:30 PM - 8:45 PM



For the second meeting our good deed will be writing a letter of encouragement to  Asia Bibi who has been in prison since 2009 and sentenced to death for sharing her faith. If you want to do more and petition for her freedom you can find links here.
