About The Event
Welcome to our online Midweek Study! We are currently discussing the book, Blessed to Follow: The Beatitudes as a Compass for Discipleship by Martha E. Stortz.
In Matthew's Gospel, the Sermon on the Mount inaugurates Jesus' public ministry, and the first word out of Jesus' mouth is 'blessed'. He repeats this word throughout his first sermon. Jesus calls his disciples by blessing them. As he speaks, he introduces himself to us and introduces disciples to themselves, for the Beatitudes offer a character sketch of who disciples will become if they follow him.
