    Dr. Flanagan, an avid baseball fan and sometimes theologian, finds the obvious and not-so obvious theological references in the game of baseball. Pitching relies on the edge of the strike zone, as our faith calls us to be concerned about those on the edge. Baseball integrated in 1947, and we find issues of race throughout Judeo-Christian history. We are called to perfection in our faith, as does the game of baseball. We will explore these topics and more, common to theology and baseball.

    Led by: Rev. Phil Dieke
    Childcare: No

    Young adults are not entering the doors of the church at the same rate as older generations, and the church is concerned about it. If the absence of this generation from church continues, the future church will suffer. This generation of young adults is critical of the church and institutions in general. And the church is spending considerable time and resources in understanding young adults and how to attract them to the church. Attempting to attract this generation is forcing the church to change, and will force future changes. What will today's young adults contribute to the future church? What will the church look like in the future if this generation of young adults remains absent from its sanctuaries?

In a give and take format, Dr. Parsons will help us deal with our questions of faith around the pandemic.
