Clarification Mtgs: Feb 6 (Sustainability) & Mar 6 (War Tax Resistance)

Please attend Clarification Meetings at Cherith Brook on both Fridays, February 6 and March 6, from 7 to 8:30pm at our storefront next door to the house.

We have chosen the topic of Sustainable Living for our Feb 6 gathering. Our friend and local farmer, Steve Mann, will lead a serious discussion of the facts and the realities of where we're headed if we don't DO some of the things he suggests as remedies. Entitled "New Heaven, New Earth: A Biblical Vision for Sustainability", you may wish to read Isaiah 65:17-25 in preparation, as we will begin with a meditation on this scripture.

For our March 6 gathering, we have chosen the topic of War Tax Resistance. We will employ a panel discussion including several folks who have personal experience with this issue, "The things that are Caesars and the things that are God's: Christians Resisting Caesar, Resisting War Taxes." We will begin with a meditation on Matthew 22:15-22, which you may want to review prior to that evening.

We encourage you to come prepared with other references, your questions, and personal stories on any of the topics of discussion during our Clarification Meetings. We hope to deepen our understanding of each issue, based on Biblical teachings as well as facts presented by those in attendance at each gathering.

We look forward to seeing YOU soon!
