This Far by Faith Adult Formation

In Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis writes, “It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for a bird to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”

 

As Disciples of Jesus we are on a life long journey of growth and transformation. Our Adult Formation classes at St. Luke’s aim to provide the space, time, and conversation needed to help you along the way. Whether you are new to this journey or you’ve been a pilgrim all your life, we hope that you will join us in becoming more of who Christ is calling us to be.

THE BIBLICAL COSMOS

 

Sundays July 4 -August 8

10 am – 10:45 am 

Large Conference and via Zoom

 

Join us as we explore the context and world view of biblical times. From a flat earth, oceans with dragons, mystical mountains, demonic deserts, temples that reach the heavens, and more, we will explore just how different the world inhabited by the Bible’s characters is from our own. Not leaving us there we’ll also talk about how this worldview can help speak God’s word afresh in our modern world. No reading required.
