Study Group Readings:
Classes of the Neighbor (2014):
This study is about six categories of the neighbor, which provide a summary of all the spiritual states of the neighbor. Ancient people studied these categories so that they would know how to exercise charity toward their brothers. They learned to recognize the spiritual needs of their neighbors and how to meet these needs. In the process of learning and practicing charity, they became better neighbors. And in the highest sense, they learned to love the Lord: “As much as you have done it to one of the least of these My brothers, you have done it to Me.” (Matthew 25:40)
Please read or listen to the daily readings before your Study Group meets. You can download them below or pick up printed copies at the church.
The Sunday church service at the beginning of each week will be on the same topic as the Study group. After Sunday you should be able to find a recording of the service under "Audio Sermons".
You may also find this chart from the class on the first Friday helpful in seeing how the classes of the neighbor fit with different states of life.
If you need to find a Study Group to join, contact the Pastor's office.
