After opening with a conversation about what to do with the space freed up in the Fox Building on Sept. 9, Adult Forum really gets started with a series on theology and understanding our progressive Christian tradition. It opens on September 16.
Michael frequently reasssures the congregation that doubts and questions are okay and are pretty much the norm for Old Firsters. In that vein, Bastian Liu will introduce adult forum to the outstanding discussion series, Living the Questions. Yes, this is the series that was started in an evening group a couple years ago, but everyone’s calendars seemed to get in the way.
The series is way too good to pass up, so it will be featured on rotating Sunday mornings. I once had a pastor tell me that discussions of theology were not for the laity. Living the Questions, the polar opposite to that pastor’s comment, is an open-minded alternative to studies that attempt to give participants all the answers. It features thirty of today’s leading religious voices and turns viewers into participants who interact with each other and explore the best of today’s theological thought. You might have your own revelations, but you will certainly end up with a better understanding of our progressive Protestantism. Join in! Other Living the Questions dates for the fall are September 30 and November 4.
