Author To Discuss “Toxic Christianity” At Wilmington Church On June 23

WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington’s United Methodist Church will be hosting author Morgan Guyton on Thursday, June 23rd, 2016 at 7:00 pm.

Guyton is the co-director of the NOLA Wesley United Methodist Campus Center with his wife Cheryl. His first book “How Jesus Saves the World From Us: 12 Antidotes for Toxic Christianity” is being published by Westminster John Knox Press. He blogs at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/mercynotsacrifice and has contributed dozens of articles to Red Letter Christians, Huffington Post Religion, Think Christian, Ministry Matters, United Methodist Reporter, and Rethink Church.

On amazon.com, his book is described as being for “for Christians who are troubled by what we’ve become and who want Jesus to save us from the toxic behaviors and attitudes we’ve embraced. Each of the 12 chapters proposes an antidote for the toxicity that has infiltrated Christian culture, such as ‘Worship not Performance, ”Temple not Program,’ and ‘Solidarity not Sanctimony.’ Each chapter includes thought-provoking discussion questions, perfect for individual or group study.”

Wilmington United Methodist Church is located at 87 Church Street in Wilmington. For more information, call 978-658-4519. Visit us on the web at http://www.wilmingtonumc.org.
