Wed Discussion Group moving to Thursday

The Wednesday Discussion Group (we might need a new name) is moving to second and fourth Thursdays, starting on April 11, 7pm on Zoom. We'll be discussing Marcus Borg's great introduction to the study of the historical Jesus, "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time." This will be especially useful for our newer members, although everyone is invited. Even if you read the book the first time we did it, twenty years ago, you might enjoy seeing how your perspective has changed and what you have learned since then. Preface and Chapter 1 for the first meeting.
