   New Church Family invites you to an interfaith lay discussion about the meaning of Holy Week and its relevance for today's life. The March 19 God Gab gathering, starting at 7 p.m., will use "The Last Week" as a guide for perceiving and interpreting the actions and statements of Jesus from Palm Sunday through Easter. The book was written in 2006 by theologians Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. They contend Jesus had a political agenda as he rode his donkey into Jerusalem to confront the priests and scribes running the Temple. 

     Copies of the book can be obtained beforehand at the church or the Port Orange Library. Inexpensive used copies ($4-$6) are also available through major bookstores, Amazon, and eBay.

    Anyone is welcome to attend and participate. You don't have to be a member of our church, or any church, nor agree with the interpretations of Borg and Crossan. We ask only that debate be kept courteous and respectful. We will probably meet for 60 to 90 minutes and then have coffee and refreshments.

    "God Gabs" have been held at our church every few months for several years on a wide variety of topics.  Some have introduced us to other religions and denominations, such as Judaism, Islam, Wicca, Mormonism and Eastern Orthodox Christianity. Others have explored such topics as the Great Flood, origins of Halloween, gay saints, taming our tongues, Bible translations, theology of the body,  the Rob Bell book, "Love Wins," and the Peter Gomes book "The Good Book." We welcome topic suggestions and volunteer facilitators for future sessions. Contact Tom Brown, This email address is being protected from spambots.
