Men’s Connect Breakfast
March 25 @ 8:00 am – 9:30 am
Men of all ages are invited to gather monthly in an intentional space created for fellowship, mentoring, friendship, and supporting one another in relationship, work, life, and faith. We will offer blessings to one another through reflection and prayer requests, homemade hot breakfast, conversation, and facilitated dialogues. Each month, we will feature guest inspirational speakers and provide questions for very interesting group discussion.
We are pleased to have Michael Barram, Ph.D., as our guest speaker on the topic of “Relinquishing the Quest to Understand Everything—and Other Good Things that Have Happened to My Faith”. He is a member and teacher at First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley for more than 20 years and a biblical studies professor in the Department of Theology & Religious Studies at Saint Mary’s College of California. With John R. Franke, Barram co-chairs the steering committee of the Forum on Missional Hermeneutics, an Affiliate Program of the Society of Biblical Literature. In addition to essays and reviews, Barram has authored two books: Mission and Moral Reflection in Paul and Missional Economics: Biblical Justice and Christian Formation. Recently, Barram and Franke completed a book manuscript on missional biblical interpretation (to be published by Cascade Books) entitled Liberating Scripture: An Invitation to Missional Hermeneutics. Currently, Barram is co-editing a book of collected essays by biblical scholars and theologians arguing in favor of reparations for Black Americans.
