Drawing from the agricultural imagery of a cow chewing its cud, “ruminate” means to think deeply, to turn something over again and again.
Ruminate is a group that gathers to read books written by the saints who’ve gone on before us. We, like our bovine counterparts, want to chew on the thoughts and words handed down to us. We want to think deeply about God, about the Church, and about what it means to live our lives as Christians.
We are currently reading Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Life Together.
It is the custom of this group to gather in one another’s homes to break bread together in a shared meal and time of fellowship, discussion around a selected reading/chapter, and to pray together.
We gather at 5pm on Sunday evenings. We’d love to have you join us!
In the past we have read the following:
- The Heidelberg Catechism (a Reformed Confession)
- Mark Noll’s Turning Points: Decisive Moments in the History of Christianity
- Rowan Williams’ (former archbishop of Canterbury) Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer
