Sunday School starts at 10 a.m.
A good Bible teacher not only knows the Bible but knows herself, knows others and knows God, not in a know-it-all sense because God cannot be known fully, but knows God in a personal, intimate way. A good Bible teacher also knows how to listen, knows the human condition, knows the life of the marginalized and plundered, and is able to bring the Bible to life in light of such knowledge.
Rev. Dr. Chris Ayers teaches a Sunday School class which currently is studying John Shelby Spong's Unbelievable: Why Neither Ancient Creeds Nor the Reformation Can Produce a Living Faith Today. Next, we will study Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint by Nadia Boltz-Weber. A third book in our study series is Father Gregory Boyle's Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship. Chris, from the study of these books, is teaching his view on what it means to be church today and how modern Christians can change the world.
Starting in September Rev. Malu Fairley-Collins will lead a Discernment Group on Sundays at 10 a.m. Ever wish you could get constructive, non-judgmental feedback on things that matter to you in a setting of silence, prayer and meditation? This is the group for you. Stay tuned.
