Each Sunday we gather at 9:15 am in Hart Hall for coffee, snacks and conversation about our faith, the world, and how we can make a difference.
Dec 29 – No Forum
. Come back for an interesting new season of classes in January!
January 5 “Hymns Back Story”
We start the new year learning some new things about some old friends: hymns, such as Amazing Grace, the Battle Hymn of the Republic, A Mighty Fortress, and more. Pastor Don leads us in this musical exploration, hoping that as you learn more about the hymns you can appreciate them all the more.
January 12 – “Reinhold Niebuhr – An American Conscience”
Today Pastor Don will show a DVD telling the story of one of the most important American thinkers and theologians: Reinhold Niebuhr. Perhaps Niebuhr’s greatest fame came from people (incorrectly) attributing the “Serenity Prayer” to him. But his life-story shows a man of serenity speaking truth to power.
January 19 – “Theology of Breath”
Jody Johnson will present ideas from her backgrounds of science and faith, giving insights into the significance of each breath we take, and insights on how the Bible describes our breath and the breath of God.
January 26 – “Jesus Was A Buddhist Monk”
This morning Lee Taylor will show a video, prepared for the BBC, that points to the relationships between the presence and teachings of Jesus with aspects of Buddhism. Come expecting some interesting surprises.
No Class on December 23 but will resume on December 30
