LOOKING AT OUR FAITH
April 7 to May 19 6PM to 8PM
Registration Fee: $10
Let’s face it, no one has all the answers when it comes to our faith.
Get to know others at Grace while learning a little more about your faith. Join us for Animate, a seven week series featuring perspectives on God, religion, Jesus, salvation, the Bible, the cross, and church.
April 7 - GOD/FAITH IS A QUEST: We will look at who exactly is the God we worship? Is God a mighty fortress, solid and unchanging? Is God a mystical, unknowable force that floats around us like a vapor? How can we speak of faith if we can’t even speak of God with any certainty?
April 14 – RELIGION: What does it mean to be spiritual? Is it the same as being religious? How do the seeds of faith take root and thrive. What role does organized religion play in helping—or hindering—growth? If religion is the problem, why has it held fast for thousands of years?
April 21 – JESUS: What does it mean to walk in the way of Jesus? What if our churches became places where we practiced being like Jesus? What if we were serious about joining in with Jesus’ Revolution of Love? What if we took the kind of social and economic risks Jesus took, and reshaped what it means to be a Christian?
April 28 – SALVATION: What, exactly, does it mean to be saved? From what? For what? Is salvation a reward we claim at death or something meant to change our lives right now?
May 5 - CROSS: The cross sits at the center of our faith, and yet our understanding of what exactly happened on that cross remains conflicted and confusing. Was Jesus our proxy? The payment? The only way to appease an angry God?
May 12 – BIBLE: Why read the Bible? Why do we keep turning to the same stories in search of some new revelation? What is it about the Bible that makes it worth repeated reading? What gets in our way as we read the Bible and try to make sense of it?
May 19 – CHURCH: What does it mean to be a church family? How do we stay connected to this sometimes-broken family system? What does it mean to commit ourselves to the church family, for better or for worse?
