April 2: How Do We Get the Wonder Back? Getting the wonder of the Bible back means appreciating how we have a Bible in the first place. We will review how the Bible came to be and think together about how this makes a difference for how we approach the Bible. This is session 3 of 4 sessions.

April 9: As we begin to observe Holy Week, you are invited to hear a dramatic presentation of the passion story according to St. Mark. In the early decades after Jesus's death and resurrection, the Gospel was spread by story tellers who recounted the Jesus story. Roger Ezell re-enacts such a presentation so modern listeners can experience the story of Jesus as early Christians heard it in their early worship services. Come to experience the story as it was likely told long ago.
