Adult RE: House for Hope
UUC, Blacksburg VA

Join Rev. Pam Philips for this opportunity to dig deeper into our liberal religious roots by discussing and reflecting on a book written by two prominent UU ministers and theologians—John Buehrens and Rebecca Parker. A House for Hope: The Promise of Progressive Religion for the Twenty-first Century lays out the theological house that religious liberalism has inherited and suggests how this heritage will need to be spiritually and theologically transformed. Ideally, participants attend each class, but drop-ins are welcome for those who have read the appropriate chapters. Class will be held on March 15, 22, 29; April 5, 19, 26; and May 3. See weekly emails for chapters under discussion. Register online.
