Seeking Gray in a World of Black and White by Adam Hamilton

Everyone agrees that America is polarized, with every-hardening positions held by people less willing to listen to one another. No one agrees on what to do about it. One solution that hasn’t yet been tried, says Adam Hamilton, is for thinking persons of faith to model for the rest of the country a richer, more thoughtful conversation on the political, moral and religious issues that divide us. Hamilton rejects the easy assumptions and sloppy analysis of black and white thinking, seeking instead the truth that resides on all sides of the issues, and offering a faithful and compassionate way forward.

ADULT BIBLE STUDY (KERYGMA)

Romans: A Letter for Today

This study will introduce Bible study participants to the role that Paul’s letter played in the life of seminal reformer Martin Luther and the events surrounding the Reformation. Discover why Romans is called “the most inspirational letter ever written.” Appreciate why these words to the Church in ancient Rome echo still with energy and power. Encounter theology in the making as Paul wrestles with enduring issues: justification and grace, sin and salvation, a vision of unity, and the faithfulness of God-the same issues that believers, old and new, have contemplated throughout the history of the church.

Begins Monday, January 15 from 6:30-8:00 PM

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY

Gospel in Life: Grace Changes Everything by Timothy Keller
