“Embracing an Adult Faith,” written by Marcus Borg.
This 5-session adult study focuses on fundamental questions of faith: “Who is God? What does salvation mean? What place does Jesus hold in contemporary Christian faith?” It challenges the viewer/reader to explore the big, unanswerable questions about God and faith personally, soulfully and fearlessly. It is a rich, rich source of discussion questions. Rev. Cathy Hoop, leader.
The group will meet Sundays @9:45 AM in the UKirk Student Center.
“The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic,” written by John Shelby Spong argues that this last gospel to be written was misinterpreted by the framers of the fourth-century creeds to be a literal account of the life of Jesus when in fact it is a literary, interpretive retelling of the events in Jesus’ life through the medium of fictional characters, from Nicodemus and Lazarus to the “Beloved Disciple.”
This study runs October 5-November 2. The group will meet Sunday evenings in homes. Time is TBA.
