During the pandemic, our Adult Seminar will meet online via Zoom on Sundays at 11 AM following worship. You will need to log onto a different Zoom link for the adult seminar. The link is available in the Friday Flyer or email Julie Evans to request it.
The fall adult seminar schedule isn’t yet finalized. Here is the first seminar for the fall:
“Words that Matter: Confessions of the Presbyterian Church USA” – beginning on September 27th
Together we’ll examine and discuss words used to express and convey our faith through the ages, from scripture to contemporary times. The word Credo means “I believe.” The noun Confession comes from the Latin verb confiteor, “to confess.”
Confessions are unavoidable. Even those who reject creeds have one. “No creed but Christ” is a very short and inadequate creed, but it is a creed nonetheless. Thus, the question is not whether we will have a confession but whether it will be biblical, ecumenical, and sound.
Confessions have brought unity and have sowed division. Blood has been spilled over words. The ‘filioque’ controversy from the 4th Century is an example that seems unreal, but may also hit very close to home (look it up on Wikipedia.) Join us after worship to agree or disagree, but most of all, to engage in thoughtful, prayerful and discerning conversation, called together by the One in Three who calls us to love one another. ~Rev.
