Reading/Discussion Topics for Fall 2015:
September – No book this month, we will discuss the SCOTUS marriage equality ruling and the church. OnSeptember 28 at Hardy Memorial UMC the meeting will be led by Rev. John Thornburg – Texas Methodist Foundation area consultant, former Perkins preaching instructor, and published hymn writer – is facilitating the conversation on: “Turning on the Worship Power Grid – Working for Fuller Participation.” Just as a bumper car ride is only exciting if your car has power, worship is only truly rich and memorable if everyone in the sanctuary can experience God’s presence and power. But sometimes worship leaders keep all the power on the podium. This seminar will provide concrete examples of how to spread the power and excitement of worship throughout the sanctuary. There will be plenty of time for participant questions to be addressed, as well.
October – Wearing God by Lauren F. Winner. On October 12 at Pittsburg First UMC the meeting will be led again by Rev. John Thornburg on the same topic as in September.
November – The Emotional Intelligence of Jesus: Relational Smarts for Religious Leaders by Roy M Oswald and Arland Jacobson
