Religion is at its best when it makes us ask hard questions of ourselves. It is at its worst when it deludes us into thinking we have all the answers for everybody else. ~ Archibald Macleish
What are your questions about faith? We all have them: questions about the nature of God or Christ, how to interpret certain biblical stories or passages, Christian doctrine or theology, beliefs you were taught when you were growing up, the interplay between religion and science, the role of religion in culture or government – just to name a few.
During worship this coming summer, we’ll tackle your particular questions in a sermon series entitled, “We All Have Questions.” In order to make this sermon series work, we need to know what your questions are. You’re invited to send your faith-related questions to our pastors, Joanne Whitt or Diana Bell, in any way that works for you: email, in-person conversation, a personal note, phone call, text or even a Facebook post. There is no such thing as a stupid question. The pastors will review the questions and depending on how many there are, choose among them. When questions have common themes, they may be combined into one sermon. The sermons will explore the biblical passages that best respond to the questions.
Sometimes, an exploration of Scripture might provide a pretty clear answer. In other cases, a sermon might be more of a “wrestling out loud” with the questions.
When it’s possible, accounting for preacher, event and room schedules, we’ll hold “sermon talk-backs” following worship for those who want to dive deeper into a topic.
We all have questions about faith. What are yours? Let’s explore them together this summer.
