Men's Bible Study Launches October 20
C.S. Lewis' Great Divorce

It's been a long time in coming, but we're finally ready to launch a new season of our SOJ Men's First & Third Saturday Bible Study on October 20, 8:00-9:00 AM. We'll read and discuss C.S. Lewis' classic The Great Divorce.

This fictional account of citizens of Hell being given a "second chance," cleverly presents the excuses, denials, and self-puffery we humans contrive to slither into heaven on our own terms. But as George McDonald notes on the book's title page, "There is no escape." These phantoms from Hell discover they can't carry the smallest part part of Hell... or of this earth... with them into Heaven.

And we will do well to observe and meditate on the subtle ways we rob ourselves of Heaven... in the here-and-now as well as in the bye-and-bye.

We meet at 8:00am the first and third Saturday of every month at Spirit of Joy. All men, high school and older, are welcome.

Please let Al Rogers know you'll be coming ( so he can acquire a book for you to read. Cost: $13.00.
