Liberal Theology 101

Does the word theology make you shudder? If so, join our Community Minister Myriam leanings. Theology has a range of meanings. Did you know that nearly every theologian (and there have been many!) working through the ages has had a different definition of this word, some of which you may find interesting and compelling. This course will explore a Renaud on Sunday February 16th for Liberal Theology 101.  This course aims to put an end to your case of the shudders by helping you discover a new meaning(s) that fits your spiritual and religious way to claim, or reclaim, this important word. Do you also wonder what makes a theology, “liberal?” Come find out in this two-hour class!

Save the dates for another fantastic course coming up in March!

Have you found yourself backing off from taking risks? Got burned in life or in social-justice-work and you’re not taking any chances you’ll get burned again? For ethicist, Dr. Sharon Welch, backing-off is the result of what she calls an “ethic of control.” When we subscribe to such an ethic, we expect (demand!) results. Welch recommends that we adopt an “ethic of risk” instead.  In this course we will discuss readings from Welch’s book (provided in advance as .pdf files). We will apply her ethic of risk to real-life quandaries. This course is two two-hour sessions.
