The Passionate Jesus. The Jesus I met in Sunday School was a bit like a figure in a bad wax museum. He always had a faraway look in his eyes. He was lily-white, with long brown well washed and nicely conditioned hair. He loved children and sheep, and always spoke in a nice soft voice. He was very religious, and looked with disappointed (yet not angry) eyes at naughty boys. And he smiled placidly, because he was very peaceful inside. But as I grew older, I realized that wax figures aren’t real. Jesus, on the other hand, is real indeed! This Fall, our Men’s Life study will focus on discovering the passionate character traits of the real Jesus rather than the wax Jesus, and discuss with one another how we can grow the character of Jesus within us as men. Beginning Wednesday, September 12, and concluding on November 14, we will gather in the Fellowship Hall (or Johnson building…) from 6:30 – 7:45 a.m. Tom Pace will share thoughts about “The Passionate Jesus,” and then we will join in small groups to share with one another about unlocking those same character traits within ourselves. All men are invited, and bring a friend.

Prodigal God: Finding Your Place at the Table | Wednesdays @ 9:30AM – 11:30AM | Location: Westheimer Campus, Room ES311| October 31-December 12. In this six-session study, pastor and bestselling author Timothy Keller uses one of Jesus’ best-loved parables – the Prodigal Son – to illustrate the depth of God’s love and how his grace extends into some very unexpected places. Taking you beyond the traditional focus on the wayward younger son, Keller helps you glean insights from each of the characters in Jesus' parable: the irreligious younger son, the moralistic elder son, and the Father who lavishes his love on both. Whether you're a devout believer or a skeptic, The Prodigal God will challenge you to see Christianity in a whole new way. A revelation of the very heart of the gospel: God's radical love for sinners of every kind. Led by Louise McEvoy. Cost $20.
