Adult Forum January Schedule

Category : The Bell

Let’s Talk…Adults

By Teri Jewell

Adult Forum will not meet again until January, when we will continue our video discussions on The Challenge of Paul. Most participants like these videos and discussions, so it was decided to complete the series by the end of spring.

P.S. from Chelsea:

More Paul, please! The appealing vs. appalling Apostle is turning out to be pretty appealing….

As you can see from Teri’s note, Adult Forum is taking a break for Advent. If you haven’t had a chance to check out John Dominic Crossan’s video series on the Apostle Paul, you will still have a chance in the new year! Grab a cup of coffee and join Teri in the chapel for an interesting and enlightening series.

January 5 – The Future of Roman Christianity

January 12 – Vision & Vocation in Damascus

January 19 – The Long-Distance Apostle

January 26 – The God-Worshipers

Dr. Crossan is a major scholar in contemporary historical Jesus research. His latest book is How to Read the Bible and Still Be a Christian: Struggling with Divine Violence from Genesis Through Revelation (2015).
