A Lenten Book Study with Fr. Michael will read and discuss Samuel Well’s Hanging by a Thread. This book revisits the harrowing story on Calvary that is at the very heart of our Christian faith. With unswerving courage, elegant simplicity, and captivating example the author scrutinizes the assumption that the Crucifixion was only about fixing human problems by suggesting Calvary was the culmination of God’s disarming purpose to be with us, no matter what. This transformation from “for” to “with” discloses a profound, moving and inspiring vision of what the central event of our Christian faith was truly about while affirming the Incarnational theology of the Anglican tradition. If you are interested in reading this easy to read (it is only 62 pages), but thought provoking book with us, please contact Fr. Michael so we can coordinate our first gathering time. The book, Hanging by a Thread, can be purchased from Fr. Michael for $6.00.
