- Are you you intrigued by Jesus, but find yourself confused by theological discussions?
- Do you have a church background but wish you had a better understanding of basic Christian beliefs?
- Do you wish you had a good way to respond to claims made by Fundamentalists and biblical literalists?
- Do you feel pressured to choose between science and logic on the one hand and Christian faith on the other?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are encouraged to participate in the new small group at St. Thomas’ called “Christianity 101”! Led by Bob Moluf and Murray Scheel, this group will meet after coffee hour (sessions start at about noon) for 7 Sundays, beginning in September and ending in November (there will be no sessions in October).
This small group will have a somewhat different focus than that of a pre-confirmation class in the Episcopal Church, and the group is open to anyone who wishes to participate, regardless of church (or non-church) background.
Each of the 7 sessions will be 90 minutes long, and they will be held at St. Thomas’ Parish, starting at about noon, on the following Sundays:
- Sep. 8 – Overview: Topics, Sources, Methods
- Sep. 15 – God & the Hebrew/Jewish Tradition
- Sep. 22 – Who Was Jesus?
- Sep. 29 – The Holy Spirit & the Christian Community
- [No sessions in October]
- Nov. 10 – Baptism
- Nov. 17 – Eucharist
- Nov. 24 – Ministry
If you would like to participate in this St. Thomas’ small group, or if you have questions about it, please email Bob Moluf (firstname.lastname@example.org).
