An Ecology of Faith
Understanding our faithful ties to God and the world around us
Presenter: Darnysha Nard
Duration: Wednesdays, October 24 – November 14
Over the course of four weeks, we walk our way through the Bible from an ecological perspective. We will discuss the weight of the God given responsibility for humanity to have dominion over the land and what ecological dominion looks like for faithful Christians today.
Job: Finding Beauty From the Ash Heap
Presenter: Steve Sumerel
Duration: September – November
Job may be the most troubling yet beautiful books of the Bible; troubling because Job did not deserve the disasters that befell him, beautiful because of the view of God that could only be revealed from the ash-heap. In this study, we will seek to understand the place of Job in Old Testament thought and theology, and we will get a glimpse of God through the eyes of Job, his so-called comforters, and even Job’s family. Job is worth the time to read and study slowly… for the story… the poetry… the theology… and for the opportunities it brings to form a deeper relationship with God. We shall seek to encounter Job on all these levels in this three-month series.
