Life of Leisure
Come together and explore what it means to really have the life you want, a life of meaningful work and the true ability to be at rest. Learn how to avoid the feeling of emptiness we can get from the entertainment culture and how to have a real immersion into the recreation that comes with knowing who we are and how we are meant to live.
Thursdays 7:00-8:30 PM
Using Josef Pieper’s “Leisure: The Basis of Culture” we will explore these topics
* September 14 *We are “un-leisurely” in order to have Leisure

* October 12 *Leisure as a festive rest from work
* October 26 *The Leisurely Arts and the Practical arts

The Gospel of Matthew is the gateway
into the New Testament;
come and see why!
Like the Old Testament Torah with its five books, Matthew is intentionally structured with five divisions “books” culminating in the great sacrifice of Christ.
Book 1 (Chapters 1-7) Jesus Introduced: God’s Perfect Man, the Fulfillment of Law and Israel
Book 2 (Chapters 8-10:42) Jesus Authenticates Self in Miracles and Public Work
Book 3 (11:2-13:52) Jesus Rejected by the Religious Elite and Book 4 (Chapters 13:53-18:35)
Jesus Creates New Community
Book 5 (Chapters 19:1-25:46) Jesus Goes to Jerusalem, the City of the Great King;
Climax (Chapters 26:1-28:20) Events Surrounding the Great Sacrifice
