Walking with Loved Ones through Faith Deconstruction (Liz Snell)

Walking with Loved Ones through Faith Deconstruction (Liz Snell)

November 11, 2022

Increasing pressures from both within and outside the church are causing more and more people to go through a season of "deconstruction", reevaluating the foundations and assumptions of their beliefs. Some go through deconstruction and return to Christianity, while others never do. What does it feel like to go through such a major transition? And what does it feel like to be a friend or family member of someone whose faith is coming apart? This lecture will examine how friends and family members can care for those who are going through a shift in faith, while also caring for themselves.

Who or What is the Holy Spirit? (Clarke Scheibe)

Who or What is the Holy Spirit? (Clarke Scheibe)

October 4, 2022

Clarke ventures into the mysterious yet wonderful reality of the Spirit. Often people speak of the Holy Spirit as a force or an impression or as a "holy ghost." The Bible speaks of the Spirit as a person yet we never see the Holy Spirit; we only see what the Spirit does. How are we to think of this Spirit who is to indwell us and to mark time since Jesus ascended?

Shall Every Knee Bow? A Look at Christian Universalism and Judgment (Clarke)

August 30, 2022

This talk looks at and critiques Christian Universalism, the belief that all people will be saved through the work of Jesus, whether a person trusts or does not trust in "Jesus as Lord." Is this a real possibility? And if not, how can God be good if he judges people not unto salvation?

Thy Kingdom Come: ls Social Justice the end goal of Christianity? (Clarke Scheibe)

Thy Kingdom Come: ls Social Justice the end goal of Christianity? (Clarke Scheibe)

July 2, 2022

Clarke re-gives an earlier talk due to demand! In this talk, he examines the cultural revolution of the 2000s that led many young evangelicals to despise the lack of social justice from traditional churches and led them inadvertently to abandon traditional faith. He then looks at how Critical Theory works in shaping not only their faith but also society in general. Finally he turns to see how the whole church might pursue social justice in light of the whole biblical witness.

Steadfast Love: Finding Secure Attachment with God (Liz Snell)

Steadfast Love: Finding Secure Attachment with God (Liz Snell)

June 18, 2022

Attachment theory gives us helpful insight into how people bond with each other. But what does it mean for our relationship with God? We will look at attachment styles and how we can understand God as our model for secure attachment, providing a base to move forward into secure relationships with each other.

The Way of Wisdom: A Living Epistemology (Clarke Scheibe)

The Way of Wisdom: A Living Epistemology (Clarke Scheibe)

June 3, 2022

Exciting! A talk on epistemology! While seemingly an intimidating and abstract topic about how we come to know the world around us, this talk will look at how we might gain an understanding of the world that does not divide faith from reason, or meaning from nature. The wisdom tradition (Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, and Jesus) provides this very much needed integration today. It moves us from a dead modern epistemology to a living one.

Are You Open-Minded? A Case for God (Clarke Scheibe)

Are You Open-Minded? A Case for God (Clarke Scheibe)

May 13, 2022

Often people speak of being open-minded as a way of discrediting a belief in God. However, in this talk, I argue that we need to look beyond closed explanations for existence and open our minds to admit our desire for God. This is a basic argument that suffering and joy are two fundamental aspects of experience that point to the existence of God.

Shame and Grace in Gilead: Reflections on the Novels of Marilynne Robinson (Liz Snell)

Shame and Grace in Gilead: Reflections on the Novels of Marilynne Robinson (Liz Snell)

March 22, 2022

Marilynne Robinson's quartet of Gilead novels, set mostly in rural Iowa, explore the tension between shame and grace. Much of this contrast comes through the medium of sight: how we see the world, ourselves, and God, and how others see us. Saturated in the beauty of the natural world, human relationships, and theological meditations, Robinson's novels have been beloved by many. Join us as we discuss how this Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist teaches us to have eyes that see and truly perceive the goodness of God.

Daniel 2: Fake News, Political Anxiety, and the Kingdom of God (Clarke)

March 8, 2022

By looking at Daniel 2, we see that the Bible gives us a reflection on the relationship between God's people, their nation, and the kingdom of God. When we see nations without an anchor, power becomes arbitrary. How might the Christian respond in those times?

Can Christians Love Themselves? (Liz Snell)

Can Christians Love Themselves? (Liz Snell)

Many people accuse Christianity of fostering shame in its adherents. The self-esteem movement has attempted to address feelings of worthlessness. But does self-esteem work? How should Christians think about themselves?
