Come join in any Weds morning...

[cut/pasted from an email from Pastor John Hay... BikeHiker.]

The Wednesday morning roundtable meets at 7:30 am each Wednesday. Its facilitators (unofficially) are David Metzger and David Weinschrott.

The table is open to anyone. Usually, anywhere from five to nine folks join in.

I’d say our focus is understanding the city and bearing grace, peace, and justice in the city (and particularly the urban neighborhoods adjacent to UB CafĂ©). We read and discuss either books of the Bible or books that challenge us. We’ve worked through the minor prophets, James, Hebrews, etc., and books like The Upside Down Kingdom by Donald Kraybill, God’s Politics by Jim Wallis, Making Room by Christine Pohl, a book by John Eldridge, The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and, currently, Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne.

We have open and sometimes vigorous discussion…seasoned with a readiness to try to understand one another, give each other grace, and stay at the table. We pray together each time we meet.
