Join the conversation on February 21, 2019 (6:30) at Journey of Faith about the book:: They Met at Shiloh by Phillip Bryant.

Pittsburg Landing was a place at peace--one that never expected to be the site for one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. Peace is shattered as Confederate and Federal troops meet on the fields and farms surrounding a tiny Methodist church. In the midst of death and destruction, friendships form as four soldiers struggle to survive the battle.

Forced to leave his position as minister, Phillip Pearson knows his life is in danger, but not just from the Confederates. The Harper family, incensed at Pearson's refusal to bury a philandering son, has a vendetta against him that is played out on the battlefield.

Demoted from his command by a West Point graduate, Capt.Michael Greirson is forced to choose between ambition and duty.

When a bumbling youth becomes his shadow, Private Robert Mitchell gains an unlikely friend--something that has been missing from his life. Afraid to trust, he is forced to confront those fears and depend on others in the heat of battle.

War is an adventure to Private Stephen Murdoch and his best friend, William Banks. For months they dream of the glory of war before volunteering together. On the eve of battle, they sense something momentous is about to happen. Their idealistic views fade in the blood of their fallen comrades. (Summary by Amazon)

Sermon Series (Part 1)

Join us at Journey of Faith for a six week sermon series on the Book of Revelation: It’s The End of the World As We Know It. The first part of the series begins on Sunday, February 3, 2019 and ends on Sunday, March 3, 2019.

The Revelation. The title of this book suggests that something- something important- will suddenly be made very clear. And yet it remains arguably the most confusing and mysterious of all the Biblical texts. 

A sword-tongued Jesus. A jeweled throne in Heaven. Seals and horsemen. A dragon. A Beast (or two!). A lake of fire. For millennia, Christians have puzzled over the meaning of these images. Was it all a drug induced dream? A coded message? A true-to-life prediction of the future as interpreted by a man who didn’t understand 20th or 21st century technology?  

The text might actually be able to shed light on the nature of God, our current call as God’s people, and how the troubles of our times might resolve in the light of God. A revelation (or two or three), indeed, might be hidden inside.
