FX | Philemon

Come Together

Wednesdays in September

6:00 - 7:30 pm

in Moncrief Hall

Paul’s letter to Philemon is one of the shortest books in the Bible—just one chapter—but is one of its most moving stories of the reconciling power of the gospel. Three men, from three different walks of life: Paul, the zealous missionary, Philemon, the well-to-do man of the city, and Onesimus, the runaway slave, find that they stand on level ground at the foot of the cross. 


Come enjoy dinner, live music by the house band, and a talk, thinking through how the story of Philemon can heal our own lives.

Dinner & Discussion

“You have been given questions to which you cannot be given answers. You will have to live them out - perhaps a little at a time.’ And how long is that going to take?’ I don’t know. As long as you live, perhaps.’ That could be a long time.’ I will tell you a further mystery,’ he said. ‘It may take longer.”   - Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow


Our current (2016/17) Great Books series began with the quintessential question about human life as addressed by Ancient Greek philosophers (in particular, Plato): What is “virtue”; or, how does one attain truly human excellence: by nature, by instruction, by habit; or by some other means, beyond human resourcefulness? 


We continue in exploring this question in our final Great Books dinner/discussion for this season with the reading of Jayber Crow” (by Wendell Berry), available now for $10 per copy, through Alann Sampson


Serious fun!

Beginning April 26

6:00 - 7:30 PM

New Testament letters and stories often launch into prayers--in thanksgiving, praise, and for churches to be strengthened and encouraged in the Lord, modeling for us hearts and minds open to and directed toward him. This series will explore in-depth particular New Testament prayers, asking of each: How does this prayer embody the thought of its author, and help us to read the rest of the New Testament? What does this prayer teach us about God and his work in history through Christ? How can we make this prayer our own? Dinner, and music by the house band, from 6-6:45, followed by a talk from 6:45-7:15, and Q&A, discussion, and prayer from 7:15-7:30 A nursery will be available.
