Lenten Study


  • University UMC 2409 Guadalupe Street Austin, TX, 78705 United States (map)

During Lent, we as a church are studying Brian McLaren's book, The Great Spiritual Migration. Christianity today is in need of change. More specifically, Christianity is in need of a migration. There are three powerful shifts that define the change: a spiritual migration in which a system of beliefs is exchanged for a way of life of love, a theological migration that rejects a violent image of God in favor of seeing God as a renewing Spirit at work for the common good, and a missional migration concerned less with organized religion and more with organizing religion. McLaren’s book will continue to challenge us and offer us more food for thought. We hope you will make this commitment using this special time of Lent for spiritual and personal growth.
