It’s ALL About Eve! – Lenten series: The Women Who Walk with Jesus

It

Ash Wednesday Worship

Traditional Ash Wednesday worship would require us to focus on the brevity of life and remember that none of us will get out of this life alive. Our ancestors in the faith, entered into a morose season of Lent via the awesome reminder that they came from dust and soon they shall return to the dust.  Lent was a season of lament and repentance based on a particular understanding of what it means to be human. Since the 11thcentury most of Christianity has understood the human condition as that of those who have fallen from grace. But we live in a post-modern world. We no longer believe that Adam and Eve were the first humans. We read Genesis not as history but as myth. We understand that humans evolved over millions of years. There was no perfect human condition for us to fall from. What happens when you reject the theological construct of original sin? What happens when you embrace the idea that we are fiercely and wonderfully made? What happens when you see humanity as originally blessed?  Join us as we explore new ways to Embrace Our Mortality.  Worship begins at 6:30pm.

Adult Education Class resumes this Sunday Jan.19 with BEYOND BELIEF

Beyond Belief, Featuring the work of Marcus Borg

Starting Sunday January 19, 2020 @ 9:15am

MARCUS BORG Beyond Belief, featuring Rev. Marianne Borg: “What you’re going to hear in the series is, if you will, the best of Borg. For some of us, it’ll be like hearing Marcus again for the first time. For many of us, a lot of this is still going to be new. There is something about Marcus’s work that I think will continue to make all things new in a way that we can look afresh at Christianity in the 21st century – what it means for the living of our days, what is real, and how should we live.”
