How do you read a gospel, a narrative of the life of Christ written for the purpose of helping the reader the risen Lord?
Come join us for an 8-week journey through Luke.
This is a discussion group for those who are just learning how to read scripture as well as for those who want to take a deep-dive into one of the greatest works ever written.
Wrestling with the New Testament
This group will consider several of the most important questions raised by modern critical scholarship about the New Testament. Is the New Testament truthful? Does it possess integrity? We will seek wisdom as to how to best grapple with these questions by reading and discussion short selections from some of the Church's best thinkers, both ancient (Irenaeus, Augustine) and modern (including Richard Hays, N.T. Wright, Richard Bauckham).
Faith @ UNC: The University, Christ, and Me
What place do distinctly Christian beliefs have within a public research university? Is faith strictly a matter of private conviction and entirely separate from the knowledge of the classroom and the lab? Or rather, does Christian theology necessarily impact the way that we approach our studies? Join us this fall as we meet over the course of 7 weeks to explore these questions through short readings (5-10 pages/week) and discussion!
We have challenging and exciting articles and book excerpts to read for this course. Stay tuned for the syllabus!
Created for Good: Connecting People to Calling
This is a course for theological education and individual discernment led by Mark Dawson, the founder of Created for Good. Here's how Mark describes the group:
The centrality of Christ is crucial to the concept of calling. Our callings are not rooted in our vocations, desires or successes; rather they are rooted in Christ alone.
His work is to redeem his creation, and our calling is to join Him in that work. Joyfully. He equips us to come alongside Hi in our own unique and beautiful ways. Thankfully, He desires for you to know and live out the good works for which you were created.
You have a crucial role in Christ’s work. If you are uncertain of it, we would like to help you find the clarity you need.
