Speaking Christian: Reclaiming the deeper meaning of the Christian language
Sunday mornings at 9:45 on April 8, 15, 22, 29
Do you find that faith/God talk is unfamiliar and almost like a foreign language? Or, on the other hand, do you find it all too familiar, but some or many of the words/concepts have become more of a barrier than a benefit on your faith/spiritual journey? UCC ministers and Mayflower members Mirjam Berger and Dick Sellers will lead this series based on Marcus Borg’s concise and readable book, Speaking Christian: Why Christian words have lost their meaning and power – and how they can be restored.
Borg writes: “Christian language has become a stumbling block in our time. Most of its basic vocabulary is misunderstood by Christians and Non-Christians alike… This book’s purpose is to help us to read, hear, and inwardly digest Christian language without preconceived understandings getting in the way.” A great complement to our New Members’ Orientation!
