Overheard: Conversations With Walter And Bill

PDF

April 26-May 31, in Room 103

Dr. Walter Brueggemann is one of the most respected and original Old Testament scholars of our time, and LBJ's Press Secretary Bill Moyers has long been acknowledged as the reigning dean of American public television interviewers. Join them for 6 weeks as they raise questions in our minds and trigger our imaginations about early stories in Genesis that are so familiar we're sure there's nothing new to know about them.   Bring your Bible, your questions and your imagination. Be prepared to think some new thinks as we consider Walter's fresh viewpoints and join Bill's lively interfaith PBS dialogue, Genesis: A Living Conversation. Facilitated by Rev. Mary Swierenga.

Painting The Stars

April 26-May 31, in the Library

The title of this 6-week video series was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh: "When I have a terrible need of--dare I say--religion--then I go outside and night and paint the stars." The series is subtitled Science, Religion and an Evolving Faith and explores the promise of evolutionary Christian spirituality. It helps us see that science-rejecting creationism and faith-rejecting atheism are not the only choices. The series features many leading theologians and progressive thinkers who illustrate that religious faith and spiritual practice can be strengthened and deepened by what God is revealing through science. Each lesson includes a short video, followed by guided discussion. Join our exploration! Facilitated by Kevin Estes.
