NOOMA: A New way to study.
We can get anything we want, from anywhere in the world, whenever we want it. That’s how it is and that’s how we want it to be. Still, our lives aren’t any different than other generations before us. Our time is. We want spiritual direction, but it has to be real for us and available when we need it. We want a new format for getting Christian perspectives. A new study will launch at Monticello First United Methodist Church beginning Wednesday, March 8. There will be 2 groups: one meeting Wednesdays at 1:00 PM and second group meeting Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM. Both groups will meet in the church Fellowship Hall.
Jesus lived with the awareness that God is doing something right here, right now, and anybody can be a part of it. He encouraged his listeners to search, to question, to wrestle with the implications of what he was saying and doing. He inspired, challenged, provoked, comforted, and invited people to be open to God's work in this world. Wherever he went, whatever he did, Jesus started discussions about what matters most, because for Jesus, God is always inviting us to open our eyes and join in.
The name NOOMA is an English phonetic spelling of the Greek word pneuma, which is commonly translated to “spirit” or “breath”. Pneumatology refers to the study of spiritual beings, particularly the interactions between humans and God.
NOOMA is a series of short films that explore our world from the perspective of Jesus.
NOOMA is an invitation to search, question, and join the discussion.
Plan now to join in the conversation as we explore our world from a different perspective. For more information contact the church office: 706.468.6118.
