Faith in a Time of Uncertainty

August 29, 2017

Certainly we live in an uncertain time – civil, political and global unrest, economic uncertainty, technological and cultural change, and perhaps, personal transitions. We often forget that other times and people throughout history have seen great uncertainty. Israel was born in a time of uncertainty, but found its grounding in the God of Abraham. The Protestant Reformation was a time of great religious, political and cultural upheaval, but the reformers sought out the scriptures. With the theme of Faith in a Time of Uncertainty, the Adult Education Short Course will focus this fall on these two times in world history that have an enduring impact on how we view our faith both corporately and personally.

Beginning on Sunday, September 17, Roy Stahlman will share his travels to the Holy Land, and through photos, personal stories and scripture, we’ll learn about how Israel found Faith: Grounded in the God of Abraham. Then, beginning on Sunday, October 22, Ted Gail will facilitate our discussion of Faith: Grounded in the Scriptures, with a study of Martin Luther.

We hope you will join us in Kingswood Room 2-3 for a time of learning, faith sharing and encouragement to face our uncertain times.
