Befuddled by Beliefs - Christian Doctrine
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Northminster Presbyterian Church
Ever wondered about what Presbyterians believe – or not? This six week series, 6:00 pm on Wednesday evenings from January 23 - February 27, 2019, explores this from both the official position of Christianity and the encouragement the Reformers provided to think for oneself. Using the book Christian Doctrine by Dr. Shirley Guthrie ($10 through the church office), participants will briefly discuss the tenets of the faith and then spend significant time in discussion of how they apply to daily life. Topics include . . .
Session One - “Am I a theologian? What is a doctrine and why do we need them?”
Session Two – “Eureka! I found God – or has God found me? The Doctrine of Revelation”
Session Three – “Did Jesus have to die for ME? The Doctrine of Atonement”
Session Four - “The Devil made me do it! The Doctrine of Predestination”
Session Five- “Why is there evil? The Doctrine of Providence and the Problem of Evil”
Session Six – “Is this all there is? God’s power over death and the Doctrine of the Resurrection”
The class will be facilitated by the Rev. Jill Hudson, retired Presbyterian pastor and former Associate Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
