Faith or Works? Gospel or Law?
Join us for an engaging study as we explore these key questions in the life of every Christian. Two small but mighty studies tackle one of the most contentious issues in theology: what is the role of faith and works when it comes to salvation?

What in the world is the Holy Spirit up to?
Wisdom Spirituality in the Big Picture
The Reformed tradition has always believed, as John Calvin affirmed, that wherever truth and wisdom are to be found they ultimately come from God. We have rejected the division between sacred and secular, therefore, have questioned the hard boundaries that some set between Christian and other ways of faith, and have been open to new ideas and knowledge from a variety of sources, whether religious, philosophical, cultural or scientific.
In this class, we will briefly explore four non-Christian sources of wisdom, the kind of practical knowledge or understanding that helps us to live sanely, faithfully and well. We will begin with the very heart of Hebrew wisdom literature, Ecclesiastes; explore the Greek Stoic teacher, Epictetus; reflect on ancient Taoism from China; and, finally, consider core teachings of Zen Buddhism from Japan. The goal of this course is to open ourselves to sources of wisdom and spiritual life that spring from God’s work beyond our usual paths.

Letter from a Birmingham Jail
The Letter from Birmingham Jail is an open letter written on April 16, 1963, by Martin Luther King Jr. The letter defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racism. It says that people have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws and to take direct action rather than waiting potentially forever for justice to come through the courts. Responding to being referred to as an “outsider”, King writes, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
