Grappling with the Word

So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.”

-Genesis 32:24

Grappling with the Word is a group that meets on Thursdays at 6 pm. Grappling means wrestling. Do you have tough questions about the Bible, life, God or something we haven’t thought of? At Tribe of Light Christian Church, we refuse to leave questions unasked! Not only do we want to ask the tough questions, we want to find answers, and in so doing wrestle with meaning and purpose. Grappling with the Word is a safe space where you can ask those tough questions. We won’t laugh at you or beat you over the head with the Bible!

We begin Grappling with the Word sessions by sitting around in a circle and discussing life. Anyone who wants to share an idea, challenge a thought, or just ask a question, is free to do so. Past discussions have ranged from “evil and a good God” to “the purpose of sex” and everything in between. We’ve even had deep discussions about aliens! No topic is off-limits. Oh, and after our discussions, for those who are interested in martial arts, we literally grapple (that’s wrestling with submissions… think Brazillian Jiu Jitsu).

Some people come and join just for the discussion and then leave or stay to watch the grappling lessons and matches. Others enjoy doing both. Either way, beginners and experienced grapplers are always welcome. Who knows, you might not only leave with a fresh question to ponder, or with the knowledge of a new submission…you might even leave with something that could save your life!
