Deuteronomy: A Deep Well for our Wilderness
led by Dr. Dan Day
Jesus and the early church found Deuteronomy to be a deep well of wisdom for daily trials and for braving the new world of God’s “kin-dom.” Unfortunately, much of this book’s riches remains unexplored today–after all, it is Old Testament! However, a society and church seeking guidance in the wilderness of our post-Covid world can learn much from “Moses” speaking from a previous wilderness. Bring your Bible as we try to translate his ancient words into contemporary relevance.

The (2nd) Biggest Religion Story of the Century: A View from the Ground
led by Marv Knox
Across the past 50 years, Christians have harmed the cause of Christ by fighting each other with terrifying ferocity. Baptists are only part of the horrifying story, which blends fervent religion, bare-knuckle politics and outrageous God-talk. Marv covered religion 40 years as a journalist and will discuss what happened, why it happened, how it affects the faith landscape today, and God’s redemptive activity through it all.
March 19 in Room 102
From Border(s) to the Triangle: Immigration and Christian Hospitality
led by Marv Knox
What are the push-pull factors that cause people to risk everything for a shot at living in the United States? Immigration is one of the most important and polarizing issues of our day. The causes are complex, and the “cures” are contentious. Let’s talk about the immigrants—who they are, why they come, what has been happening to them. And let’s talk about how Christians can advocate for justice in the midst of chaos.
