SUNDAY CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
At 10:10 am on Sunday Mornings


January 31
Christianity and Tolerance
Dr. John Bowlin, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary
We are told that tolerance is a virtue, that a liberal democracy requires a tolerant citizenry, a people who can live among differences they cannot endorse, that they might even consider abhorrent. But we worship a God of justice and truth. Can we be faithful to this God while tolerating injustice and enduring falsehood?

February 7
Love’s Endurance through Conflict in the Church and in Politics
Dr. John Bowlin, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary
Scripture tells us that this love endures all things, even through conflict. In our own day, the church in America confronts its own disagreements and divisions; so does our democratic political life. Can love’s endurance bear witness to God’s love across these disagreements and divisions? Can it be a portion of divine love’s temporal life?

February 14 & 21
The Mission of the Church in a Post-Christendom World
Dr. Darrell Guder, Professor Emeritus of Missional and Ecumenical Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary
The Christian movement in the West is going through a time of traumatic change. This passage is often described as the end of Christendom. In this series of two sessions we will examine how the so-called “Christianization” of Western cultures shaped the church. And then we will suggest that the end of Christendom is not so much a threat as an opportunity.
