Mysticism Class with John Mabry (via Zoom)

People are often put off by the word “mysticism,” and yet few people really know what it means. This is surprising, since Christianity is an inherently mystical faith tradition, with important strains of mystical thought in every age of the church. In this study group, John Mabry will lead us through his book Growing Into God: A Beginner’s Guide to Christian Mysticism. Join us as we de-mystify mysticism and explore the living heart of the Christian faith.

Books are available at worship.

Suggested donation: $10 or whatever you can afford.
