Grounded Book Study - Session 5

  • Highlands United Methodist Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Upper Room Class E209

Led by Reggie Holder

Grounded by Diana Butler Bass explores the fact that religion is on the decline in America as many people leave behind traditional religious practices and suggests that what appears to be a decline may actually be a major transformation in how people understand and experience God. This shift, from a vertical understanding of God to a God found on the horizons of nature and human community, is at the heart of a spiritual revolution that surrounds us—and that is challenging not only religious institutions but political and social ones as well.

Grounded guides readers through our contemporary spiritual habitat as it points out and pays attention to the ways in which people experience a God who animates creation and community and looks at new ways of understanding God.

Bringing her understanding of the latest research and studies and her deep knowledge of history and theology to Grounded, Bass cites news, trends, data, and pop culture, weaves in spiritual texts and ancient traditions, and pulls it all together through stories of her own and others’ spiritual journeys. Grounded observes and reports a radical change in the way many people understand God and how they practice faith. In doing so, Bass invites readers to join this emerging spiritual revolution, find a revitalized expression of faith, and change the world.

Books will be available for purchase in the Greeting Space, starting Sunday, January 7.

Contact Reggie Holder for more information.
