Adult Education Class: Save the Date!

Did You Ever Get A Whippin’ With the Bible Belt? Liberal Religion, Scripture and the South

 

Have you ever had the Bible used as a weapon against you? This adult education class is Bible study for the jaded, the cynical, the skeptical and those recovering from spiritual abuse. It is also for those with an open mind who are simply curious about the Bible and want to learn more about it. We will be looking at the teachings in the Sermon on the Mount and how they challenge religious literalism and legalism. We will compare and contrast the teachings of Jesus with others found in the world’s religions including Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Native American spirituality and more. In harmony with rabbinic tradition we will read verses, reflect on some interpretations and have a discussion where there is openness to different points of view and room for disagreement. This class will be facilitated by the Reverend Chris Buice. We will meet for 3 sessions (with the option of a 4th session) January 24, 31 and February 7 from 7:00-8:30 pm on Zoom
