FALL 2017 - EDUCATION AND ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES!


NEW ADULT EDUCATION SERIES BEGINS TODAY: LIFE AFTER DEATH

Facilitated by the Rev. Dick Ringenwald

Sundays November 5, 12, 19, 26 and December 3, 10 at 11:15am in the Back Board Room

            At the core of the Christian faith is God’s promise of eternal life. But in a pragmatic world how realistic can this be? In this course we will look at what Christianity fundamentally says about life after death from an academically oriented point of view. We will delve into history, anthropology, archaeology, psychology, comparative religion, physics and of course Scriptural theology to see where some of Christianity’s understanding of life after death originates and how it develops and changes over time.

            We will talk about the Easter event, judgment, heaven, hell, body/soul dualism, the doctrine of atonement and what eternal life actually means to include what theologians refer to as realized eschatology. We will also take particular note of where Christians differ on these issues. It is our hope that one will come away from these classes with an even more solidly grounded faith in God’s extraordinary gift.  The course will be offered on Sundays November 5, 12, 19, 26 and December 3, 10 at 11:15am in the Back Board Room.
