A Lively and Living Faith
Taught by Bob Knechel
Faith lives in the area of our deepest commitments — as committed individuals and communities of commitment. This course seeks to create conversation between participants and historic thought leaders — like Kant and Calvin, Kierkegaard and Freud, Tillich and Bonhoeffer, Barth and Wallis — for whom Jesus Christ is the central fact of history along with those who understand faith from some other point of view.
Jesus and Socrates: When the Questions Exceed the Answers
Taught by Richard Baker and the Reverend Ray Merz
“Jesus is the answer,” says the bumper sticker. But he is also the questioner, and even the question itself. If you look at the Gospels, Jesus asked some 307 questions—including one of the most challenging about himself, “Who do you say that I am?’ Jesus as questioner and question will be the focus of this five-week class. In this class, we will also compare Jesus to other famous questioners, including the ancient philosopher Socrates, who made asking questions his life’s work. So what did Socrates and Jesus have to say about the big questions: God, faith, love, and living a good life? Come and find out.
Connecting to Westminster from Within
convened by Laurie Davis
Whether you’re a new member or more seasoned, you’ve heard about the various ways to serve at Westminster. From the pulpit, we hear stories of connection between people and God fostered by these experiences. This class will develop those stories and share in practical terms what it's really like to be a tutor, Ruling Elder, Stephen Minister, Labyrinth sitter, Children and Worship Storyteller, and more. It will clarify Westminster mysteries like "what's the difference between a Presby Group and a Small Group?" Come to this class to connect with the people in the class and learn the many ways to deepen faith through service, fun, giving, and connection with others. And no, you do not have to sign up to do anything else, if you attend this class.
