Shall We Look for Another? Another Christ? Another Church? Winter/Spring 2014 Hedgerow

Perhaps Martin Luther is right. The scriptures can save us. For people disillusioned with institutional religion and disheartened by abuse scandals or disengaged by scientific discoveries, the scriptures offer a do-it-yourself option for staying reflective on how our lives individually and communally matter. Sacred texts originate in the human experience of the holy in our world, a presence still alive to us. The Gospels originate among Jesus’ men and women disciples and the communities of Christians that heard, told, and lived Jesus’ story.
We bring an expanding cosmos and evolving Earth community into dialogue with the 2000-year-old gospels. We experience contemporary issues that divide people—the women’s movement, GLBT, the economics of the 99%, hunger, healthcare, climate change, and education issues.
