We will soon be moving into stage 2 of our exploration of the question What is God?
Our first book study starts on Tuesday 19 July at 2.30–4 pm in the Weyer Room of the Caloundra Uniting Church, when be will be discussing George Stuart’s wonderful book Starting all over again? Yes or No? I have included a plan for this study over 6 weeks. Rev John Smith, a leader in the progressive Christianity movement in Australia, had this to say about George’s book:
“Starting all over again? is a timely book from a man of faith, because it provides encouragement and wisdom for all who are struggling to find a faith grounded in honesty, integrity and most of all in compassion. George is well known by progressive Christians for his composing of modern lyrics expressing the theology that has developed as a result of his search for his unique spiritual voice. Christians seeking to express their spiritual beliefs have been blessed by George’s compositions (Singing a New Song), because they can now sing with integrity as well as passion. For all who are searching for a faith with integrity George’s book is a must read.”
