Starting on Sunday, February 12, we began offering an eight-week Forum series about the basic tenets of our faith and how we put them into practice in a world which has become increasingly polarized. Each Sunday, we profess faith in God, and the language we use in this is broad enough to be shared by many people in our tradition who hold a diverse variety ideas of what it means to be faithful to God. How is our approach to Christianity unique, and what do we share with other Christians across our country and world who may disagree with us? How has the meaning behind our familiar words changed over the years, and what does it mean for us today? Join Intern Maria McDowell and Associate Rector James Joiner as they begin this course through some of the core values of our belief system and they mean for us as a community living our faith in 2017. We’ll look at these questions and more at 10:10 am in the Nativity Hall. Each Forum gathering stands alone; you can come for all of them or on selected Sundays.
Sunday, February 19
Our Forum series Back to Basics: Practicing our Faith in a Polarized World continues today at 10:10 am in the Nativity Hall. This week, we take a close look at the Christian idea of what it means to be human, what it means to be a person. How is our image of humanity informed by our ideas about God and vice versa? We’ll place a special emphasis on shedding some light on the variety of Christian answers to questions of where we go wrong and what we can still get right. Join Maria McDowell for this new segment in our ongoing conversation about what it means for us to be a community living our faith in 2017.
