THE EPIC OF EDEN:
UNDERSTANDING THE OLD TESTAMENT
Wednesday mornings at 10am AND
Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm
Beginning August 14 // Room 97
As Christians we spend a lot of time in the New
Testament and the Gospels. This makes a lot of sense. Yet to truly understand the Gospel story, we need a sense of what the Old Testament offers and how it shapes our understanding of the New Testament. In addition, the Old Testament contains stories that rival some of the most exciting movies we see on the big screen! In this class you will:
• Gain a rich understanding of the context in which
the Old Testament was written
• “Organize your closet,” making sense of all the
Old Testament parts, pieces, and stories you’ve accumulated over time
• Discover how the the big story of Scripture has
serious implications for our present. Just because it happened in the past doesn’t mean it stays there!
Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:00pm // room 125
// Beginning August 21 and Ending October 16
I’m not too discouraged by different denominations.
All Christian churches hold many beliefs and practices in common. It is the differences that spice things up and allow us to worship God in ways that reflect our uniqueness. For example, I don’t appreciate when
incense is burned in a church service. It isn’t that I’m
against using sensory perception in worship — but incense drives my sinuses crazy, and, to be frank, I like breathing. And while I am not musically gifted, I do love music and wouldn’t want to regularly attend a church that bans instruments. And yes, such places of worship exist for those who are really old fashioned, deeply contemplative, or other things that I am not. If you have ever wondered about the differences between Christian denominations, my next class is for you. As we examine the differences in major American denominations, we will simultaneously study our own beliefs and practices more thoroughly. The only text needed will be your Bible, but if you like extra work you can read Handbook of Denominations in the United States — 400 pages of pure fun.
