New Adult Studies to Start
The Topic Study Resumes its Exploration of Living the Questions
January 7: Restoring Relationships There are three Biblical “macro-stories” that shape the whole of the Biblical narrative: Bondage and Liberation, Exile and Return, Sin and Forgiveness. Each representing a different facet of the human condition, they demonstrate what is necessary for the restoration of relationships on a variety of levels.
January 14: The Prophetic Jesu Jesus was a troublemaker. He said and did things that were upsetting to agents of the political and religious domination systems that oppressed the weak and downtrodden. In this way, Jesus stood firmly in the tradition of the prophets of Hebrew Scripture – those who offered a clear and challenging “alternative script” to the status quo.
January 21: Evil, Suffering, & a God of Love If God is all-powerful, all-loving, and all-good, how do you explain and respond to the existence of so much suffering and evil in the world?
Adult Bible Study to Return
Pastor Roger will be leading the Sunday morning adult Bible study for the next few weeks beginning January 7th (no class on Jan. 14). The subject will be the life and message of the apostle Paul based on the book The Call by Adam Hamilton. There is no need to purchase the book, but if you’d like to it is available in print or on Kindle from Amazon.
Mark Your Calendars – Chili Cookoff
Pull out your recipes, warm up your soup pots, and get ready for a Chili Cook off on Sunday, January 28th at HCC.
This will take place after worship with prizes and other activities. More details will follow via email and bulletin inserts.
