St. Aidan’s primary goal is to make disciples. Every single one of us is called to follow Jesus, to be transformed into His image, to become a disciple.
There are many ways and practices that help us along that path: the weekly rhythms of prayer and worship, acts of mercy and service, and spiritual practices and disciplines among others.
This Fall, St. Aidan’s is inviting you to
join a Reading Group!
Beginning in September, our groups will be gathering in-person and electronically to read, discuss, pray and fellowship.
Our Reading Groups are open to everyone. You don’t have to be a member of the Church.
If you want to read and reflect with a group – all you need to do is sign-up below for the book (or books!) you’d like to read. The group leader will contact you to set up times for meetings and schedules for readings!
The books we’ll be reading this Fall are:
“The Liturgy of the Ordinary” by Tish Harrison Warren
What if the most important practices we adopt each day are making our beds, preparing a meal, or saying, “I’m sorry”? Could the most mundane parts of our life be the places we’re mostly likely to encounter Jesus? Tish Warren invites us to consider how our ordinary daily choices shape us into the people fit for God’s Kingdom, and opens our eyes to the presence of God around every corner.

“Reading While Black” by Esau McCaulley
Each culture hears, receives, and proclaims the Gospel through its own unique voice and perspective. Too often, though, our reading of Scripture is limited only to our own cultural perspective. In this book. Esau McCaulley invites us to experience the rich and varied reading of Scripture through black voices and perspectives, helping us to to encounter the Bible in a new and more vibrant way.
“The King Jesus Gospel” by Scot McKnight
‘Get saved and get to heaven!’ has been understood as “the Gospel” in American Evangelicalism for decades. But does this reflect the way that Jesus, the Apostles, and the early Christians shared ‘the Good News’. in this book, Scot McKnight invites us to imagine the broad and life-changing possibilities of proclaiming that ‘Jesus is King!’
Remember, these groups are open to everyone! Invite your friends and family to join us as we read. Just make sure to click on the “Sign Me Up” link above to receive info about meeting and reading schedules!
