    God is love.  God is spirit.  For many Christians sovereignty overshadows love as God’s essential nature: “Everything happens for a reason...though I can’t imagine why or how a loving God would cause or allow such.”  And distance better describes God’s whereabouts than does presence: “I believe in God...means I simply believe he exists, out there or up in heaven.”  Let’s look at three different Christian understandings of the claims that God is love, and spirit...each offering fruitful insights with liberating and empowering implications.

His battle plan depends on catching you unaware. If you are tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.  The Armor of God, is more than a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, it is an action plan for putting on the armor and developing a personalized strategy for success.

    Led by: Dr. Hugo Magallanes
    Childcare: No

    Does having faith mean abandoning reason?  It’s easy to get that impression.  Still, it seems reasonable that a supremely intelligent God would want yo to use your God-given intellect on your spiritual journey as much as in any other aspect of your life.  Faith may not stand on rational thinking alone, but a solid faith should walk hand in hand with intellectual integrity.

    Does it really matter what I believe?  What is the relationship between faith and knowledge?  Why are there so many religions?  Do all paths lead to the same God? 

    Consider questions, objections, and concerns that you can’t help but raise as you think your way clearly and honestly to answers that satisfy you because they’re your answers – conclusions you’ve arrived at personally without manipulation, coercion, or game-playing.

    This is an online course, limited to 20 participants. You can take this course anywhere as long as you have a laptop or tablet with a video camera.

    We are fortunate to have the four gospels in our canon.  Each gospel has a different perspective on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and each has a different purpose for writing.  We will look at the differences and similarities of the four gospels, identify their theological perspective, ask how each applies to our contemporary understanding of Christ, as well as our personal theology.

    No cost. The only requirement is an NRSV Bible.
