“What do you want? That’s the question. It is the first, last, and most fundamental question of Christian discipleship. In the gospel of John, it is the first question Jesus poses to those who would follow him. When two would-be disciples who are caught up in John the Baptist’s enthusiasm begin to follow, Jesus wheels around on them and asks, ‘What do you want?’”
So begins the first chapter of James K. A. Smith’s book, You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit. This month, Dr. Doug Thomas will lead a book study during the Sunday school hour where we will read and discuss Dr. Smith’s challenging suggestions about ways we can cultivate our love for God, His Church, and His work.
“Discipleship [he says] is a way to curate your heart, to be attentive to and intentional about what you love…. to want what God wants, to desire what God desires, to hunger and thirst after God and crave a world where he is all in all….” If such a vision calls to you, come join us.
The class will meet each Sunday, beginning March 8th at 9:15 a.m. in the library.
Books are available for purchase in the church office for $14 each.
