QUESTIONING FAITH: PREACHING SERIES TO KICK OFF 2013

ADDRESSING SOME TOUGH QUESTIONS

STARTING JANUARY 6TH

If you’d like to renew and reinvigorate your spiritual life in 2013, join us at All Saints’ Episcopal Church for a preaching series: “Questioning Faith: Asking the Tough Questions.” We will address such questions as:

  • Is Christianity the only correct religion? - January 6
  • Am I “saved” – and what does that mean, anyway? - January 13
  • Did the miracles in the Bible really happen? - January 20
  • Is God a God of peace or a God of vengeance? - January 27
  • Is there really a place called hell that sinners go to for eternity? - February 3
  • Do good Christians have doubts?
  • Does the Bible conflict with modern scientific theory?
  • If somebody has never felt God’s presence does that mean they’re not really a Christian?
  • What if I’m wrong?

In this modern age, faith can be confusing; join us as we ask just what we must believe to “qualify” as Christians, and as we seek a practical faith that can help us live our increasingly complicated lives. Come and bring your own questions! For more information, contact The Rev. Sandra Etemad, mothersandra@ymail.com.
