Advent Study

Faithful: ...Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph

November 26, December 3, 10 and 17, 10:45 AM, Room #4

This is an Adam Hamilton DVD study and is a counterpart to “Not a Silent Night” that came out few years ago focused on Mary's perspective on Christmas. In Faithful he draws upon what we read about Joseph in the New Testament, what we can know from first century Judaism, and the early traditions of the church to paint a picture of Joseph's life and how his life speaks to us about our lives, and about the meaning of Christmas. Please contact Susan N. at 916.220.7378 for more information. 

Gospel Scriptures

by Professor Luke Timothy Johnson of Emory University

Continues through December 17, 10:45 AM, Room #8

We are finishing up with Matthew, Luke and Acts.

Living the Questions

Starting January 7, 2018, 10:45 AM, Room #8

Is your god a very old man up in the sky somewhere as you have seen depicted? Or is your god a divinity which is ageless? And are you able to divorce one from the other? Is your God different than my god? The 1st century Greek did not have any "lower case" letters. All the "GODs" where the same. No one's opinion or understanding is wrong. Share our understandings.  Wrestle with basic questions often avoided by the church. Can you take the Bible as "Fact" or "Truth" or "What?"  Is "Fact” different than "Truth?"

Living the Questions can help people explore the future of Christianity and what a meaningful faith can look like in today's world.
