Adult Forum

October 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 am

Transforming Questions
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!

October 6: Can We Question Our Faith?
Is doubt really the opposite of faith? Or are faith and doubt linked? What do we do with the doubts we have?
We will look for the doubters and questioners in the Bible and explore the place of doubt in our own lives.

October 13: Who is Jesus?
People of all faiths and none often seem to have opinions about Jesus. But who was he really? What can we
confidently say about him? And how do we experience Jesus in our own lives?

October 20: Why Did Jesus Have to Die?
Most of the stories we hear about Jesus are about his life, but his death and resurrection are central to the
Christian faith. But if Jesus was God incarnate, why did Jesus have to die? Did God demand his Son’s death?
We will look into multiple ways of answering this question, and explore our own impressions of Jesus’s death.

October 27: What Do We Have to Do?
What does it mean to choose to follow Christ? Are there things we have to do to be a Christian? Is religion just
a list of rules? We will explore our baptismal promises and see what a life of Christian faith might look like.
