Hi, Friends-As many of you know, Eugene Peterson, author of The Message translation of the Bible passed away in 2018.  In celebration of his memory and many works, we are offering a Lunch and Learning series during Lent and Eastertide.

During Lent, we will read together his book Tell it Slant, A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in his Stories and Prayers.  In the first portion of this book, Peterson delves into the stories and parables Jesus tells on his way from Galilee to Jerusalem and ultimately the cross.

During Eastertide, we will delve into his book Practice Resurrection, A Conversation on Growing Up in Christ.  This is Peterson's 'commentary' on the book of Ephesians.

Our tentative plan right now is to meet at noon on Tuesdays starting March 12.  As this will be here before you know it, we need to get a head count to order books.  So if you could let us know by Feb 17 that you are interested in participating, that would be great.  Keith and Laura
