Peter Green: July 2020
Do you remember the American Bishop who gave that amazing address at Harry and Meghan's wedding? Well that was Bishop Michael B. Curry who is the author of Crazy Christians, the next choice of our Good Faith Book Club.
The book blurb says, "We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it. And for those who would follow him, those who would be his disciples, those who would live as and be the people of the Way. It might come as a shock, but they are called to craziness. From Bishop Curry's "Crazy Christians" address to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Indianapolis."
So you can buy this Curry online for as little as £8.99 from Aslan Christian Books (click here) or from other book sellers.
We plan discussing the book at our scheduled meeting on Saturday, 26th September from 2-4pm. We are currently exploring a socially distanced meeting with Covid protocols from 2-4pm. For those who can't make that, we are also exploring an alternative Zoom meeting around the same time. If you would like to join us for either event, please just let me know on 01296 424654 or via email — firstname.lastname@example.org.
