Sacred Text Reading WEDNESDAY

I forgot to make the following announcement on Sunday. In my humble opinion, this sacred text reading is one of the greatest things we do at ECV; I experience something new of God there every month. Come check it out!

Sacred Text Reading
THIS Wednesday, 9/21, 7pm
@ 810 Elm St (the home of John & Jen Hartley)

Our friends at Pathways for Mutual Respect have invited members of ECV and Masjid Al-Islam to engage in a series of sacred text readings, which have been really rich times together.

The basic structure involves a reading from the Qur'an with some explanation from a leader at Masjid Al-Islam, a reading from the New Testament with some explanation from a leader from ECV, with the majority of time reserved for conversation together.

In looking to love and bless the Muslim community here in New Haven, a good place to start has been in establishing understanding and conversation in dialogue with the texts in which we encounter God.

So, let me encourage you to come and join the conversation Wednesday evening at 7pm. We will be meeting at the Hartleys' place at 810 Elm St. I look forward to seeing you there.
