Wednesday Evening Fellowship begins February 6 and continues through February 27 in Fellowship Hall. A delicious dinner is served at 5:30 p.m. and classes meet at 6:30 p.m. Eating around the tables with our Dayspring Family is a wonderful time for fellowship and forming new friendships. Following the dinner – just like at home! – those who can, help to clean up! Email Pastor Shirley for more information.
Models of God, led by Amy Notbohm: The images, language, and metaphors we use for God and the divine affect how we make sense of the world around us and how we interact with other people, the environment and our own selves. Using Sallie McFague’s book Models of God as a starting point, this class will seek to highlight common ways we understand and talk about God, look at the impact of some traditional metaphors, and share new ways to both honor tradition and create new language to understand God in a 21st century context.
The Jesus Fatwah, facilitated by Pastor Jeff
The Jesus Fatwah brings together seventeen Islamic and Christian scholars to offer reliable information about what Muslims believe, how they live out their faith, and how we all can be about building relationships across the lines of faith. Each session includes DVD input and discussion. The participant guide, written by Rev. Ben Daniel (author of The Search for the Truth about Islam), serves as a catalyst for constructive and inspiring conversation.
Session 1: “Islam 101: In Which We Tell You Some of What You Need to Know About Islam.”
Session 2: “Misconceptions about Islam: In Which We Help You Adjust Your Malarky Filter.”
Session 3: “Islam in America: In Which We Introduce You to People Who Love America and Pray Towards Mecca.”
Session 4: “Making Connections, In Which Non-Muslims Make A Case & Muslims Have Their Say.”
