Feb 15 Sight for the Blind: A Study on the Significance of Eyes in the Biblical Story

Anna Friedrich
From the “pleasing to the eye” fruit of Genesis 3 to the four living creatures in Revelation “covered with eyes all around,” the Bible is full of references to sight. God’s sight and human sight seem to compliment and challenge each other. What does it mean for God to see us, or for us to “fix our eyes on Jesus”? We’ll explore these questions among others in a broad stroke “look” at sight through the Bible.

Caring for Creation Part III: Our Relationship to Farmed and Domesticated Animals – Ben Keyes

Feb 8 – Caring for Creation Part III: Our Relationship to Farmed and Domesticated Animals
Ben Keyes

What does the bible say about raising animals for food? How can we apply God’s word to our contemporary food system that relies so heavily on intensive factory farming? Should we all be vegetarians as many Christians argue, or are we entitled to rely on animals for food? Is this even a question that should concern Christians?

Revolution or Recession? Sex in Pre- and Post-Christian Cultures – Joshua Chestnut

Feb 1- Revolution or Recession?  Sex in Pre- and Post-Christian Cultures –
Joshua Chestnut
One might assume that in a culture as tolerant and progressive as our own that these would be booming times for sex, yet a growing body of research seems to point in the opposite direction that more and more people are in fact retreating from physical intimacy.  In this lecture will not only consider the sexual landscape of our current post-Christian culture, but reconsider the surprising distinctives of Christian sexual ethics as they emerged in the Pre-Christian world and how it revolutionized human sexuality.

The Gift of Grace: No Strings Attached or Call and Response? – Dave Friedrich

– The Gift of Grace:  No Strings Attached or Call and Response?
Dave Friedrich

This lecture considers the research of New Testament scholar John Barclay in his book, Paul and the Gift (2015), that challenges the definition of Divine grace as a gift with no strings attached and helps us see the gift of grace in Galatians and Romans as both divine call and human response.  (This is the second lecture in a two part series, but also stands alone.  Part one is, The Last Laugh)
