All Saints Reads!

This summer All Saints Church is beginning a book club for all interested in exploring topics in theology, Christian spirituality, church history, and relationships. We will meet monthly and read and discuss a wide variety of books. The first two meetings will be held June 26th and July 24th in the morning and evening 7 am and 7 pm. The 7 am meeting will be held at the ASC Upper Room (3622 Lyckan Parkway Suite 5005) and 7 pm at Thomas Kortus’ Home (1 Hampshire Court, Durham). Feel free to attend the time that best fits your schedule.

For the first two months, we will discuss James Torrance’s book on Christian worship: “Worship, Community, and the Triune God of Grace.” On June 26th, the first meeting, we will talk about the first 68 pgs.  Please contact thomas@allsaints-chd.org for more information.

 

torrance Description of “Worship, Community, and the Triune God of Grace” from the  publisher:  “Here is a book that sets our worship, sacraments,      communion and language of  God back on track. In a day when refinement of method and quality  of experience are the guiding  lights for many Christians, James Torrance points us to the  indispensable who of worship, the  triune God of grace. Worship is the gift of participating  through the Spirit in the incarnate Son’s  communion with the Father, writes Torrance. This book explodes the notion that the doctrine of  the Trinity may be indispensable for the creed  but remote from life and worship. Firmly rooted  in Scripture and theology, alive with pastoral  counsel and anecdote, Torrance’s work shows us  just why real trinitarian theology is the very  fiber of Christian confession.”
