SUNDAY ADULT STUDY 9:15! Beyond Belief, renowned religion scholar Elaine Pagels continues her groundbreaking examination of the earliest Christian texts, arguing for an ongoing assessment of faith and a questioning of religious orthodoxy.
Spurred on by personal tragedy and new scholarship from an international group of researchers, Pagels returns to her investigation of the “secret” Gospel of Thomas, and breathes new life into writings once thought heretical. As she arrives at an ever-deeper conviction in her own faith, Pagels reveals how faith allows for a diversity of interpretations, and that the “rogue” voices of Christianity encourage and sustain “the recognition of the light within us all.”
One of the most important things a Christian must do is deepen their understanding of the faith. When one chooses not to do this they give up the opportunity to become proficient in the language of faith and to ask all those questions that trouble us.
Every Sunday at 9:15am Adult Christian Education class meets in the Fellowship Hall to engage in conversation and the study of the faith. All are welcome ... even if you missed a class or two. The classes are always designed to be self contained so that people can come and go as their life dictates. If you are attending university - you are welcome as well. The more the better!
