Sunday Seminar

Sunday, Dec 3 | 9:25 am

Topic of conversation is Marcus Borg’s Speaking Christian: Why Christian words have lost their meaning and power—and how they can be restored. Borg argues that the very language Christians use has become dangerously distilled, distorted, and disconnected from the beliefs which once underpinned it. He calls for a radical change to the language we use to invoke our beliefs—the only remedy that will allow the Church’s words to once again ring with truth, power, and hope. Books are in the office: $14 (or pay what you can).
