A Book Study Is Coming at MRUC

 Great news for MRUC, our student minister Raphaël Pérusse will be leading a book study group here at MRUC in the coming year. 

There will be 6 sessions held nearly every second Wednesday at 7:30 pm. The sessions will last around an hour to an hour and a half and will begin with a short meditation or Lectio Divina

The book discussed will be « The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism » by Timothy Keller. Keller is a theologian, pastor, and Christian apologist. His book was ranked in the seventh position on The New York Times Best Sellers list for non-fiction books in March 2008. 

Keller addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics and non-believers bring to religion. He makes use of the literature, philosophy, anthropology, pop culture, and intellectual reasoning in order to explain how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a rational one. To true believers, he offers a solid platform on which to stand against the backlash toward religion spawned by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.

You would like to be part of this great opportunity? Please register at the church office ((514) 739-7741) as soon as possible. We could order the books here at MRUC in order to save individual shipping cost. The book will cost around $25 per person. Please register by December 9, 2018, so that we may order and have your book before Christmas. Everyone is welcome. You do not have to come to every session.
