Men's Fellowship

 

The Men's Fellowship, sponsored by Grace Baptist Church, meets nearly bi-weekly on Saturday mornings at 7:00 AM.   Men of all ages and vocations from more than seven Evangelical churches in the area regularly attend the meetings.   These times of thought-provoking lively discussion result in strengthened relationships, sharpened minds, and deepened faith.


In the winter of 2019, we are beginning a study of Spiritual Depression
- Its Causes and Cure by David Martyn Lloyd-Jones.   Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981), minister of Westminster Chapel in London for thirty years, was one of the foremost preachers of his day.   This enduring collection of twenty-one sermons by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, each originally delivered at Westminster Chapel in London, carefully and compassionately analyzes an undeniable feature of modern society from which Christians have not escaped - spiritual depression.

 

"Christian people," writes Lloyd-Jones, "too often seem to be perpetually in the doldrums and too often give this appearance of unhappiness and of lack of freedom and absence of joy.   There is no question at all but that this is the main reason why large numbers of people have ceased to be interested in Christianity."

Believing the Christian joy was one of the most potent factors in the spread of Christianity in the early centuries, Lloyd-Jones not only lays bare the causes that have robbed many Christians of spiritual vitality but also points the way to the cure that is found through the mind and spirit of Christ.
 

Previously discussed books include The Call by Os Guinness, Manly Dominion by Mark Chanski, The Universe Next Door by James Sire, Shattering the Gods Within by Dr. David F. Allen, Who Are You to Judge? by Erwin Lutzer, Extreme Righteousness: Seeing Ourselves in the Pharisees by Thomas O.
