Pastors and Group Leaders … thinking about next year?

Whole congregations, diocesan groups, and informal learning circles have used We Make the Road by Walking over the last year in several ways.
Some used it for their church’s sermon series, and some developed kids and youth curriculum to go along with it. Their reports have been so enthusiastic!
Some used it in home-based groups, like this group in the Midwest:

About 12 of us ,from varying backgrounds, but several of us from our small Episcopal church here in [the Midwest], have formed a learning circle or as M.Borg calls it a “Christian community” last fall and have been studying your We Make the Road by Walking. What a joy it is !! We meet twice a month in a friend’s home in the evening, share a snack and some wine, usually read one or all of the scripture passages; we do two of your chapters each session. Even though we all try to read the assigned chapters ahead of time , we find your format conducive to going around the room and each of us reading a paragraph or two. I have read just about all of your books and we used The Secret Message of Jesus as adult ed. a few years ago in church on Sunday a.m…. I love that your great themes of Jesus and the Reign of God, the problem of violence, the Eucharist as a table of fellowship and not an altar for sacrifice is so woven in to this current book.

If you’re making plans for 2015-2016, I hope you’ll consider using We Make the Road by Walking. It’s got a year of solid reviews behind it now. And it was just released this week in softcover – so it’s even more affordable.
