Belief Without Borders
Jason Schock will share his findings and lead a discussion around the book Belief Without Borders: Inside the Minds of the Spiritual but not Religious, by Linda Mercandante (NO need to have read the book). "Spiritual but not religious" (SBNR) is one of the faster growing religious trends in American religion today. What does it mean to be SBNR, and what are some of the key theological components that make up this group? Also, what does this movement mean for Christianity and society in general?
February 8 - Saints Stories: St Maria of Paris
Come discover more about St Maria of Paris, a 20th-century saint who was unconventional but not un-Orthodox. We will look at her writings and her icons and learn more about how she lived out the command to love your neighbor in the context of WWII and the Nazi occupation of France. Emily Johnson the Shorter will present based on her research writing a paper about St Maria.
