Having Fun with Big Questions


Having Fun with Big Questions

   I’m having fun with the Re:form Class, our new intergenerational class which is open to people who are age twelve through infinity.  We meet at 10:30 in the Fellowship Class Room.  The class has been growing, but there’s certainly room for more folks, and I would especially be glad to see more young people, younger adults, and families.  It is important for parents and children to work on forming their faith together.

   The class begins with a video which is clever…even a bit goofy.  But then, you realize it’s making seriously profound point.  Here’s an example.  A video dealing with the question of how Jesus could be God… https://vimeo.com/57008939

   We are about to complete a few weeks of reflection on the Bible…how it came to be, why it contradicts itself at times,  how we are to view its authority, etc.  You know, easy stuff!  Beginning in July, we will look at doctrinal questions… What we believe and why.  The first question is a biggie…

Can we prove God exists?

   It may surprise you to learn that the  Bible never actually  tries to prove God’s existence, but treats it simply as a given.    However, there are many people who doubt or deny the existence of God, which pretty much gets in the way of accepting the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  So, how do we respond to those doubts?   (And let’s be honest, we have ALL had them at some point.)

   There are some useful things to keep in mind when wrestling with this issue, and we will discuss them in the Re:form Class.  If you haven’t been part of a Sunday School class, or if you have wrestled with your faith, you are welcome!
