This Friday evening at 6:30 pm, Phil4eight #3 meets online for a discussion of Jewish Genius (PDF attached), a fascinating paper by Charles Murray which attempts to make sense of the overwhelming contribution by Jewish people to the arts, sciences, law, medicine, finance, entrepreneurship, and the media. If time permits we'll look at what Jewish parents do differently to foster success in these areas. This discussion will greatly increase our love and respect for the Jewish community! You will come away with a profound awe for what God has done, and continues to do through the Jewish people. You are encouraged to invite friends to the discussion.

 "Think These Things"

 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praisethink about these things.”  Philippians 4:8

 

What is Phil4eight?

Phil4eight is gospel conversation aimed ultimately at the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ. You can participate by listening or speaking, or both.

 

What is gospel conversation?

Gospel conversation is discipling, and being discipled. It is training ourselves to see grace and truth through the cultural lens of books, films, current events, etcto highlight the Kingdom of God in this world and to bring the good news to those around us. Gospel conversation helps expand our conversational repertoire so that we always have a bridge to the gospel. This week's topic will certainly give you points of contact with your Jewish friends!

 

What is the aim of gospel conversation?

We aim to...

 

1) Mature the saints in their understanding & appreciation of the gospel and the Christian story.

 

2) Foster gospel conversations and "cultivate theological attentiveness" by seeing the Christian story through the world around us: books; films; websites; the news.

 

3) Increase our gospel witness to an ever-more-complex world by equipping the saints to recognize intersections between life and the Christian story.

 

4) Stimulate souls to a lifetime of wonder, thinking, reading, and growing in the faith.

 

5) Model great conversations.
