“Half Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn’t Say”

September 4 – October 2 (5 Sundays)

We’ve heard certain phrases all of our lives, but in Adam Hamilton’s book, Half Truth: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn’t Say, we learn that although they capture some element of truth, when compared to the wisdom found in Scripture, they’re really just popular sayings. What is truth? How can we discover truth through context and close reading? What does that tell us about the nature of God? What happens when we view the world through the lens of Jesus?

The worship brainstorming for this series will be held at church in Fellowship Hall  Members of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate in the one-time commitment. The ideas generated at the brainstorming are used in worship.

We will have a potluck at noon.  Please bring a dish to share. Brainstorming is from 12:45 – 3:30 p.m. Safety protocols will be the same as Sunday morning worship.

Click here for the brainstorming packet or pick up a hard copy at church. Read the Scripture readings and Pastor Mary’s message synopses, and preview videos when they become available.

RSVPs are helpful but not mandatory. Sign up at church or contact the church office (213-798-2181 or Office@LakeHarborUMC.org) or Karen Booth.
