The Lecture Series at University Congregational UCC

Finding light in ancient traditions

The Lecture Series offers a home in the Pacific Northwest for all whose spiritual journey leads them to explore a progressive Christian theology as evidenced by the life and teachings of Jesus, and that promotes love, justice and compassion as expressed in the world’s great faith traditions.

Christianity is back in the headlines (when is it ever out of the news?) with questions about policies coming out of Washington DC and claims of Christianity that are alien to many of us. Is Christianity based in might and power and violence? Or in non-violent acts of inclusion and compassion? Both a violent and non-violent God is depicted in the Bible, so what are we to believe and where do we center our faith? Join us to explore this very topical subject at our 10th Anniversary lectures, March 3, 4, and 5, with John Dominic Crossan. Considered the preeminent Biblical and Jesus scholar alive today, Crossan will discuss his latest book,"How to Read the Bible and Still be a Christian" (HarperOne 2015). Tickets and more information at BrownPaperTickets.com (search Crossan). Questions? Contact us at lectureseries@universityucc.org
