Postscript: Online Bible Study - Thinking Like Christ

Here are the instructions for how you (yes, you) can participate in this week’s online Bible study, “Thinking Like Christ.” This is a fascinating subject that will be all the richer with your thoughts added to the discussion. I look forward to “meeting” you this week!

Two sessions are scheduled for everyone's convenience: Thursday, July 23, at 7.45 PM CDT and Saturday, July 25, at 10.45 AM CDT. The first 15 minutes will be "gathering time" for anyone who's interested in visiting and getting to know each other better. The study will begin on the hour and run 60-90 minutes, depending on the time needed.

Here's how you access the site:

Go to

Type or paste in the Meeting ID.

Thursday, July 23’s ID is 508-277-290; Saturday, July 25’s ID is 630-930-387.

Click "Yes" or "Always" (or "Trust" on a Mac) if prompted to accept the download.

Follow additional personal ID prompts and you're in!

To add the conference call audio (or simply join by telephone):

US participants dial 1-800-445-7784; international callers dial 1-630-424-2331.

The passcode for both is 981-5123#.

A downloadable study guide is available here.

I hope as many as possible can join--and invite friends and family, too. If you're fairly (75%) sure you'll be participating, I'd be so grateful to know in advance. Comment here or email me at Breaking bread is one of the most enlivening, rewarding things believers can do together. See you there!
