A Pastor Writes … Book Group says “Yes”

This past fall, 22 people in my congregation committed to doing a deep dive with your book “Do I Stay Christian?”  There were two groups; we met 6 times over the course of nearly 3 months, for 2 hours at a time.  Slow and steady, painful, illuminating, revealing, vulnerable, strengthening, maddening, clarifying, affirming … our conversations were rich indeed. It was the right book at the right time, and we’re more committed than ever to saying “Yes” to a new kind of Christianity.


— It’s always encouraging to hear that people turn a book into a conversation. What a great way to learn — and build community.

For others interested in using Do I Stay Christian?, the first appendix offers some guidelines and questions for forming a meaningful reading group.
