This past Sunday we wrapped up the "In God's Name" documentary series, which was masterfully presented by Steven & Blaire! It was very interesting to hear from the numerous religious leaders representing nearly every major religious faith & it sparked some excellent discussion. It was kind of a light turnout - with only six in class, although 2 of those were new visitors - Daniel & Christy Carlo.
Over the next 5 weeks, we will be moving to a more self-contained lesson format as opposed to a continuously building series. This week we will be taking a look at Gender & Religious Life - the premise is that a recent survey noted that women appear to be more religious in beliefs and practices than men in the United States... There should be some interesting points and thoughts that will come from this study - so I look forward to hearing from you on Sunday. In the coming weeks we will hit on some controversial topics in current society, what the Bible has to say about them, and as always your thoughts!
One quick note - we are looking for a volunteer to facilitate the discussion in class on October 25, as Amy & I will be out of town that week. We have plenty of resources to assist you, preparation is not a major time commitment and the class almost leads itself when discussion gets rolling. Let me know if you are interested!
Have a great week and see you on Sunday!
