    Hunting Magic Eels Book Discussion

    Dates: Begins October 5th
    Time: 6:30pm
    Teachers: Rev. Jon Middendorf, Rev. Chris Polluck, Dr. Ron Wright, & Dr. Paul Jones

    OKC First is partnering with 8th Street Church to bring a Wednesday night book discussion over Richard Beck's latest book "Hunting Magic Eels". This class is open to all! 

    Check out the book description below:

    "We live in a secular age, a world dominated by science and technology. Increasing numbers of us don't believe in God anymore. We don't expect miracles. We've grown up and left those fairy tales behind, culturally and personally.

    Yet five hundred years ago the world was very much enchanted. It was a world where God existed and the devil was real. It was a world full of angels and demons. It was a world of holy wells and magical eels. But
    since the Protestant Reformation and the beginning of the Enlightenment, the world, in the West at least, has become increasingly disenchanted.

    While this might be taken as evidence of a crisis of belief, Richard Beck argues it's actually a crisis of attention. God hasn't gone anywhere, but we've lost our capacity to see God.

    The rising tide of disenchantment has profoundly changed our religious imaginations and led to a loss of the holy expectation that we can be interrupted by the sacred and divine But it doesn't have to be this way. With attention and an intentional and cultivated capacity to experience God as a living, vital presence in our lives, Hunting Magic Bels shows us, we can cultivate an enchanted faith in a skeptical age."

  • Support for Afghan Refugees in Oklahoma

    OKC First is wanting to aid Catholic Charities in their efforts to welcome, support, and sustain our almost 2000 new Afghan neighbors. While they have consistently needed baby items and school supplies, their most urgent needs are transportation. Do you or someone you know have a car to donate? Do you have a personal connection that makes buying a car for cheap possible? Would you be willing to drive a family to an appointment or to the grocery store?
