Christianity and Existentialism – the Religious Beliefs of Kierkegaard and Camus
Sundays October 8 – 29
Christianity and existentialism are often thought to be mutually exclusive. But Soren Kierkegaard, the first existentialist, was a passionate advocate of his own form of Christianity. And Albert Camus in his later years became intrigued by Christianity and may even have contemplated baptism. This course will introduce the foundations of existentialism and explore how it can be reconciled with Christianity through the works of two of its most prominent philosophers.

Divine Dance by Fr. Richard Rohr
Sundays November 12 – December 3.
God is not what most people think. Visions of an angry, distant moral scorekeeper or a supernatural santa claus handing out cosmic lottery tickets to those who attend the right church or say the right prayer dominate our culture. For many others, God has become irrelevant or simply unbelievable. The Divine Dance explores the early Christian image of the Trinity: perichoresis, a circle dance. The unending flow of giving and receiving between Father, Son, and Spirit is the pattern of reality. God is not only a dancer, but the Dance itself! For more information contact Beth Poe – email@example.com
Led by: Beth Poe, Bob Stalcup, and Charlotte Mathes
Location: Land Building Lakeside
