Beginning, January 19, Belmont UMC will offer a seven-week study of Mike Slaughter’s new book, Revolutionary Kingdom: Following the Rebel Jesus. Mike Slaughter is an UMC Elder and the author of 17 books including Christmas is Not Your Birthday and Renegade Gospel: The Rebel Jesus. This newest book explores why we must exchange comfortable cultural worldviews and values for the radical requirements of living out the kingdom of God on Planet Earth. When God’s people get serious about this call, it’s revolutionary. Shane Claiborne said about the book “This isn’t your grandma’s Sunday School curriculum . . . this is a call to a holy uprising.”
Led by Mike Engle, Pam Auble, and Keila Franks, this study will meet on Sunday afternoons, January 19 - March 1, from 3:30-5:00 p.m. The weekly readings will average 20 pages and there are accompanying DVDs. Books are available for $17. To order a book, contact Pam Auble.
