Talks/Lectures, Class/Workshop, Religious
"Speaking Christian" Adult Sunday Book Study
Beginning September 24th, this new Sunday morning class will meet weekly in the bridal room which is located in the church lobby. The study will use the book, Speaking Christian, by Dr. Marcus Borg, in which he examines at all the fundamental aspects of theology. Chapter headings are: Salvation, The Bible, God, God’s Character, Jesus, The Death of Jesus, Easter, Faith, Mercy, Righteousness, Sin, Forgiveness, John 3:16, Born Again, I Am The Only Way, Pentecost, Heaven. Not only does Borg look at these basics of the faith he does so by re-examining them by looking back at the meaning of the words in their original languages. The book also reviews what these theologies were in their earliest expressions, and how they have been changed over the years and how today’s interpretations are often not even close to their original meanings. It is a scholarly study of the basics of the faith. Previous classes are needed and you may join the class at any time (it doesn’t matter if you miss a class or begin after the first class). The class will be led by the Rev. George Cushman, a retired Methodist pastor with over 40 years service.
