This fall the Adult Forum tackles some of our faith’s most central (and difficult) questions. Kevin Lowe and Ted Christopher will co-facilitate this series of workshops from Forward Movement. Each week, through both listening and sharing, we will work together to wrestle with foundational questions in the context of faith, in order to learn more about ourselves, one another, and the Jesus we are seeking. We invite you to come share in this process of discovery. These sessions are appropriate for questioning teenagers and adults alike!
November 17: Why Do Bad Things Happen?
In times of sorrow it is natural to ask where God is, and why God doesn’t seem to prevent pain and suffering.
We will explore theodicy, the branch of theology that attempts to reconcile evil and suffering with our
experiences of a good and loving God. How have Christians tried to wrestle with these problems in the past?
And how do we experience God in our own pain today?
November 24: Where Do We Go When We Die?
Much of what we think we know about heaven and hell comes from popular culture, not from the Bible. We
will dive into Scripture to see what it really says about the afterlife, and we will wrestle with what those images
and descriptions mean for our faith today, and for our hope for eternal life in the future.
