  • Learning Community: Questions Without Answers  •  July 10-31  •  ZOFL3I6ERG

    When & Where: Tue  •  July 10-31  •  6:30-8 pm  •  Mays Hall
    Led by: JB Bryant
    Childcare:

    This conversation based class opens the floor for discussion around some of the hardest questions facing faith and religion.

    How can we view the creation stories of Genesis in light of all that science has proven to us?
    Why do bad things happen to good people?
    How are we to understand horrific events and natural disasters, could these really be a part of God's plan?
    Would it be possible to outrun God's call and plan for us, and how far does our free will go?

    Through respectful, open dialogue, we will look at these and other issues in light of scripture, reason, tradition, and experience and discover the many different perspectives on these subjects.
