This Week Service - Sunday, August 28, 2016


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.
