“The Square Root of God”
Saturday, May 10
9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
We look forward to welcoming the Rev. Dr. Tim Carson to Brentwood Christian Church to lead a retreat based on his new book, The Square Root of God. His ground breaking exploration of faith and numbers provides a whole new way to understand the mystery of God and the universe – a helpful approach for the already spiritual who are looking for a new path to relevancy and the curious skeptic who is willing to entertain another way to approach the most basic question of life: What’s at the heart of it all? Those drawn to both religion and science will very much appreciate Tim’s new vision of the interplay between ancient wisdom and contemporary thought, all of which draws people toward a new search for an enlivened faith that makes sense in the modern world. Tim’s book is available at Amazon.com.
Dr. Timothy Carson is a pastor and writer who lives in Columbia, Missouri where he currently serves as senior minister of Broadway Christian Church. The author of four previous books, Tim builds bridges of understanding between historic forms of faith and contemporary thought.

On Holy Week of each year we don’t hold our usual Wednesday evening activities; instead, we participate in Maundy Thursday (7pm at Brentwood Christian Church) and Good Friday (6pm at National Avenue Christian Church) observances. Therefore, the only Wednesday evening activity today will be the Youth Group’s Seder meal.
The Interfaith Alliance of the Ozarks has announced that those who wish to stand in solidarity with our Jewish sisters and brothers following the tragic and senseless acts of violence that took place yesterday in Kansas City are invited to gather outside of Temple Israel this evening as participants from the synagogue gather for the Passover Seder, which begins at 6pm. Those wishing to stand in solidarity with their Jewish sisters and brothers are invited to meet outside of Temple Israel at 5:45pm and stay until about 6:15pm.
Temple Israel is located at 5910 S Farm Road 193, Rogersville, MO 65742.
An article from Sara Miles on the significance of Ash Wednesday:
Today isn’t exactly the most enticing of Christian holidays: it’s got no beautiful decorations, no gifts or trees or beloved carols, no festive parades or fancy hats. There aren’t Champagne toasts, sugarplums, or party tables laden with hams and roast goose: in fact there’s no food at all. Nobody gets a nice greeting card for Ash Wednesday: you just have some dirt smeared on your face and are informed, bluntly, that you’re going to die.
And yet Ash Wednesday has become one of the most oddly visible days in the Christian calendar, attracting new attention from believers and reaching people who don’t consider themselves part of the Church… [continue to read full article here]
