Adult Ed With St. Andrews -- April 19, 2020

Keeping You Informed About What We Are Doing

A Communication from Tom Weisenburger:

ADULT EDUCATION this Sunday April 19, 2019: We will be showing a short video lecture by Professor Marcus Borg given in December of 2007 at Harvard Divinity School’s Conference entitled “Finding our Way: A Conference on the Church." Marcus’s central theme is: a new form of Christianity is emerging in our time. A new way of being Christian is emerging in mainline denominations and also in a stream of evangelical denomination. This new way of being Christian is strong enough that it has sparked resistance and counter movements withing those mainline denominations. The tide seems to be moving in the direction of a more progressive Christianity within the mainline denominations.

After reviewing key points, Marcus closes by pondering what to call this new form of Christianity. Liberal Christianity is difficult because the word liberal has been used and politicized quite widely, so Progressive Christianity might be a better more widely used choice. Marcus is also tempted to call it Neo-traditional Christianity because it is both new and it is traditional in that it is a recovery of what is most central to being Christian before Christianity’s collision with modernity around 400 years ago. It is an exciting time to be a Christian and Marcus is grateful to be here for it. Join us on Zoom at 11:15 (See below for Zoom meeting login information)!
