Power Hour (Adult Forum)
Sundays, 9:30am in the Parish Hall
Join us for our 2018 Lent series from ChurchNext, “Luke The Liberator.”
Looking at the gospel of Luke through the lens of liberty, we find good news for the marginalized. In this course, five instructors take different aspects of Luke as a liberator.
February 18: Introduction to Luke
We begin the series with an overview as John Lewis, a teacher and scholar of the gospels from The Seminary of the Southwest, introduces the Gospel of Luke and discusses who its author was, the audience to which its author is writing, and its most important themes.
February 25: Liberation for Women
The Rev. Lindsay Hardin Freeman, an award-winning religion journalist who has written extensively on women in the Bible, discusses the Gospel of Luke in the context of women. She examines women’s voices in Luke, Luke’s message about women in its historical context, and Luke’s Gospel as it applies to gender and social justice in the 21st century.
March 4: Liberation from Wealth
The Rev. Ron Spann, a longtime social justice advocate, examines issues related to wealth in Luke’s Gospel. How does wealth enslave us? How does Christ free us from that enslavement? Ron addresses these questions and others in this class.
March 11: Liberated to Share
The Rev. Nurya Love Parish created the website for the Christian food movement, which calls Christians to re-connect the way they eat, grow, and share daily bread to the health of all God’s Creation. She talks about Luke’s Gospel in the context of giving — what it means to give; how Christ frees us to give freely.
March 18: Liberated to Preach
The Rev. Jay Sidebotham, founder of Renewalworks, focuses his work on church renewal — on freeing churches to grow in the spirit of Christ. In this class, he discusses Luke’s approach to spreading the good news of Jesus and what that means for 21st century Christians.
