Encountering the Easter Story through Mark’s Gospel and Stephen King’s early writing, our Tuesday night learning is via Zoom and features discussion-based small groups.
On Tuesday, 4/5 at 7 pm, please join us as we dig in to part 4b of our Lenten Forum Series: A Resurrection Beyond.
Anticipating this Sunday’s discussion of apocalypticism in Mark (13:1-27), tonight we will read briefly from The Dead Zone and Firestarter. Like young Danny Torrance sensed of his dreams (and nightmares), both Johnny Smith and Charlie McGee dream of the future. These protagonists recognize their dreams’ authority, but cannot completely discern their meaning (Johnny refers to these gaps as “the dead zone” of his precognition). Tonight, we will discuss how we might read Jesus’ visions, and, in that context, we will discuss our own, fuzzy prescience at that thin intersection of our waking and sleeping. In small groups, we will ask: What do you make of your dreams? Do your dreams revisit your past for new meanings, interpret your present, or suggest a future (whether formed by fears or hopes)? If you could know “about that very day and hour” of your death, would you want to know?
