Sunday August 28th - Jesus as a Free Spirit: A Reinterpretation - Professor Imtiaz Moosa, guest speaker
Looking closely at the words of Jesus, I just cannot believe that it makes sense to consider Jesus as founder of any organized religion --- his message is too radical, too anti-establishment, too individualistic. I will argue for why I regard Jesus to be a "free spirit", so free and revolutionary, that even today many might be shocked at his message. I base my interpretation on many of his sayings and preachings. But that does not mean that I am right. What I have in mind for our meeting is, to examine some key texts, and engage in a conversation with you all, whether my interpretation is plausible, and if not, what are some other ways to interpret them. If possible I would rather, when we meet, conduct a seminar, a discussion session, than me giving a lecture (with Q & A to follow). However, I will let the congregation decide. ---Steve Dodge will come in from wilderness to preside.
Spiritual Education classes suspended until September
See you soon!
After the service - Join us for coffee and there is always time to chat.
