Last night was our fourth gathering for the Lenten series; we met at First Mennonite Church which is just around the corner (almost) from our place. Anchor's denomination (the United Brethren in Christ) have roots with the Mennonite Church. One of the two men who founded our denomination in the 1770's, Martin Boehm, was a Mennonite preacher.
The week before we met at North Highland's Church of Christ. They have on their exterior wall a plaque which reads: Founding of Church - 30AD; Establishment of this Congregation - 1950ish...or something like that. Interesting. Kind of neat.
It's been good to meet together as one, to gather in each other's churches for food, fellowship, and reflection. The study we've been doing with Philip Yancey's material The Jesus I Never Knew has been good, the videos are very thoughtful. He keeps using scenes from the Cotton Patch Gospel - which I saw in college, but didn't care for that much. But now I'd like to see it again.
Next week we meet with the Presbyterians, always a good time!
