JOIN US Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15 in the Barr Center Dining Room for an informal “Summer Sundays” discussion led by our own Jonathan Fletcher on questions about who exactly was this Jesus of Nazareth?
Jonathan will use his book The Quiz: On the Nature of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ to prompt entertaining and informative but casual discussions of what does the Incarnation actually mean and how does it impact our beliefs and way of life as Christians, and as Episcopalians in particular.
His book has many seemingly simple questions about Jesus such as could he leap tall buildings in a single bound? Could He play golf? And could He make a hole in one at any time? Was he limited in many ways as we are? How are we to understand and relate to His miracles? What was His relationship to His Father? If He is our Savior, what exactly does that mean and how does it all work out on a day to day basis? From the earliest days of the Christian Church, such questions have been discussed, wrangled over and even fought over.
Bring your questions, your own experiences and understandings and your thirst for learning, as draw on our Anglican three-legged stool of Scripture, Tradition, and Reason to ponder and explore some of these questions as we seek to deepen our faith in Jesus Christ and ponder what exactly "faith in Jesus Christ" might mean.
Come take The Quiz? Summer Sundays will be casual, entertaining and informative; no required reading or preparation. We will begin June 3 at 9:30. Hope to see you then!
