Public Faith

Time: 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Northminster Presbyterian Church

Public Faith, Private Lives; Private Faith, Public Life
Sundays, in the Board Room, 10 am, February 18 - March 25.

Christianity, we are told by the word and the church, is a public faith. It is a faith bound up in lived experiences, in our homes, our vocations, at school, and in other public arenas, like politics. Therefore, it is important that the church understand itself both privately and publicly, and to promote an understanding of faith as a public act as much as a private one.

What this education course seeks to offer is a conversation at the church level that questions how we live in the world, and how faith guides us how to act within it. It will ask questions about social justice, what the church says about political cruelty, how American Christians react to a church that is moving (and growing) rapidly in the global South, the limits and possibilities of religious difference, and more.

We will cover a lot of topics and read from some of the world’s finest theologians today. I hope you join me on this journey, and to “come and see” how our faiths impact the world around us, and how the world impacts our faith. - Kyle Trowbridge

Come meet Kyle and hear more about this course on Sunday, February 11, at 10 am, downstairs in Board Room.
