Education hourFaithful Living in God’s Story Today

(Pastor Fields) —The church must always strive to be faithful within its time and place.  Today in America, we live in a culture that has lost its Story, that is, the true story of everything that gives meaning and coherence to all aspects of life.  What responsibility does the church bear for the situation we find ourselves in today?  What happens to life in this situation, including religious life?  How have the assumptions of our contemporary situation impacted the church’s theology and practice?  Constructively, how should the church today respond?  This class will attempt a response by unpacking the gospel as the proclamation of the coming reign of the God of Israel over creation through Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God and the one whom God has appointed ruler and judge of all.  The class will also consider the story this proclamation assumes, the theology that emerges from this story, and what it would look like for the church to live faithfully in this story today.  One aspect of faithful living in God’s true story of everything includes telling our own stories of God’s involvement in our lives.  The class will conclude by giving participants the skills to tell a personal story of a life event in which God demonstrated his faithfulness.
