Theology Readers' Breakfast (Pastor Randy Pelton)
One of my favorite church activities is the Theology Readers' Breakfast. I choose a book for us to read and put out a sign-up list to determine what's the best morning for those who are interested. Sandy finds us the best price and we all buy the book. We usually meet every other week from 6 AM to 7 AM at Country Table restaurant in Mount Joy. Pages are assigned to be read and discussed during our breakfast. During the hour we eat, we discuss the book, and enjoy some time together, always with a view towards enhancing our faith in and obedience to Christ. It's all part of teaching people to do the things Jesus said to do. I purposely attempt to choose books that will stretch all of us, which implies that we won't always agree with the author on everything. This kind of studying forces us to think carefully about what we believe. So far we've tackled books such as The Divine Conspiracy, According to Plan, The End of Christianity, and Counterfeit Gods. The current read for this summer is, Surprised By Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church by N. T. Wright. The Ambassador sings a song called, Deeper. In it he says, "We leavin the surface, We gonna go deep...I wanna go deeper....You know you're invited right?" If you don't mind getting up early and enjoy aggressive, theological thinking, consider making the Theology Readers' Breakfast a part of your disciple-making routine this year.
