Men's Book Group | Youth and Outreach Center
All men are invited to join our book study Youth and Outreach Center. We will be reading Gregory Boyd’s The Myth of a Christian Nation - How the Quest for Political Power is Destroying the Church, available through Amazon and Kindle. This book discusses Greg's view of the need for relief and hope that the church can return to the business of being the church. The church is to have a political voice, but we are to have it the way Jesus had it: by manifesting an alternative to the political, “power over,” way of doing life.
