Fridays / 1 – 2 pm / COMMON GROUNDS, 480 Rugby
“This is what the LORD says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.'” – Jeremiah 6:16
Come by the Common Grounds any Friday afternoon and you’ll be offered homemade lunch and a comfortable chair. You’ll meet the best writers of our Christian tradition—from Julian of Norwich and Augustine to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Henri Nouwen. These Vintage Christians will serve as wise guides, helping us to wrestle with the question, “How do we follow Christ faithfully in the world?”
