GOD’S LEFT HAND CLASS –LIFE’S ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS
Sundays 9:30am – Marshall Parlor (1st Floor Education Building)

“God’s Left Hand,” class led by Douglas Ensminger, meets in the Marshall Parlor. We continue to explore Process-Relational theology in November by examining Biblical texts that either support or challenge this way of understanding our Christian faith. All inquiring minds are welcome. If you have not attended before, we would be glad to add you to our conversation.

BIBLE STUDY ON DEMAND is coming in January. Most of us have a Bible passage we wish someone would do a study on. It may be single verse, a passage of several verses or even an entire book of the Bible, perhaps it is a favorite, one we really dislike, or are puzzled by , whatever the case this is your chance! Starting January 6, the “God’s Left Hand” class will study texts you suggest. Contact Douglas Ensminger for details and to suggest your passage.
