TWO BIG EVENTS COMING TO TEXAS THIS FALL!
FAITHANDREASON® will partner with other progressive organizations to present two seminars designed to promote critical thinking about faith and religious practice.
OCTOBER 12 - 13, 2012
DR. AMY-JILL LEVINE presents
"JESUS, JUDAISM, AND JEWISH-CHRISTIAN RELATIONS"
in SAN ANTONIO, TX
Amy-Jill Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies, and Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences. She holds the B.A. from Smith College, the M.A. and Ph.D. from Duke University, and honorary doctorates from Christian Theological Seminary, Drury University, the University of Richmond, the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest, and the University of South Carolina-Upstate.
This seminar is in partnership with THE WORK SHOP, St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Temple Bethel, Trinity University, Oblate School of Theology, Church of Reconsilation, The SoL Center at University Presbyterian Church, all of San Antonio, Texas, and Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, TX.
Connections Live! 2012
BARBARA WENDLAND, a life long Methodist and author of Misfits: The Church's Hidden Strength
is hosting Connections Live! 2012 on September 28-29, in her hometown of Temple, TX. The event will be an opportunity for thoughtful, forward-looking Christians to meet in person, in order to reassure each other that even though our views may be in a minority in our churches or local communities, we're not alone; to see how we might promote needed change in the church and the world; and to plan how to support each other in concrete, practical ways.
Talks and a workshop on Friday evening and Saturday morning will be presented by Dr. Robin R. Meyers, tenured professor at Oklahoma City University, and author of Saving Jesus from the Church: How to Stop Worshiping Christ and Start Following Jesus; The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus, and others.
PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIAN ADULT CURRICULUM
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL CURRICULUM FOR THIS FALL?
FAITHANDREASON® audio and video productions are deliberately designed to promote critical thinking about faith and religious practice. There are many who claim that "thinking" is somehow the enemy of a sustaining faith. We categorically reject that notion and say faith without critical thinking is blind, unaware and often dangerous.
