    Skeptics and Believers

    What are we doing when we profess belief in God? In the 17th century, Western thinkers began to ask new questions about God, faith, and religion. Can reason defend any of the assertions about God and the world claimed by our religious traditions? Is religion a force for good, or something that belongs to a past age? The course this semester examines the different modern challenges to religion in the 20th century and the ways in which Christian and Jewish thinkers have responded to these challenges. The lecturer is Prof. Tyler Roberts (Grinnell College). 

    Registration for this class is appreciated and can be done online or in the office.

    Facilitator is Dr. Keith Williamson. 6:30-8:00 p.m. Room #B4

  • let's talk

    How many times a day do you look at social media?  When you eat dinner does your phone sit beside your fork in case you need it at any moment?  How do we find the balance between face to face connection, community and conversation and the convenience and closeness that technology affords us?  Why does it matter in Christian community and relationship with God?

    This study will focus on life, community, and conversation in a digital age

    utilizing TED talks from various leaders and the best-selling book “Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age” by Psychologist Sherry Turkle.  Reading the book will enhance discussion, but is not required.

    Registration for this class is appreciated and can be done online at www.collegehillumc.org or in the office.

  • What color is the sky through your lens?

    A Bible Study Interpreting the Book of Genesis

    Often when we talk about bible study, we are thinking of reading the Bible.

    In fact, what we do is not so much reading the Bible, instead we interpret the biblical narratives through a certain lens that colors our perception and

    understanding of the text. This class is a bible study on the book of Genesis exploring various ways of interpreting the grand narratives of the scriptures from various hermeneutical (interpretive) perspectives.  Bring spiritual

    openness, mental curiosity, any version of the Bible and a sense of humor! Registration for this class is appreciated and can be done online at www.collegehillumc.org or in the office.

    Facilitator Pastor Kalaba Chali, 6:30-7:30 p.m. Room #105
