THIS WEEK

WEDNESDAY NIGHT ALIVE begins this Wednesday, September 14, at 6:00 p;m. We will be discussing John Shelby Spong’s book Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World. Bishop and social activist John Shelby Spong argues that 200 years of biblical scholarship has been withheld from lay Christians. He not only reveals the crucial truths that have long been kept hidden from the public eye, but also explores what the history of the Bible can teach us about reading its stories today and living our lives for tomorrow. Spong answers the question: Can Christianity survive the education of its believers?, with a resounding yes. No meal will be available.
