Sunday Adult Ed in October: Shame, Honor, and the Gospel

Did you know that in most of the world and through most of history the good news of the gospel is that God will replace your shame with honor, not the forgiveness of your guilt?  This theme is in the Bible and in the world around us, but we often have a hard time seeing it.  Mike Kenfield will be leading a collection of classes to help us better see, live, and share with others this often-overlooked gospel theme.  Each class, while related, will stand alone; come to one or many during the second service.  For more information and to let us know your interest in attending please email Mike.  The classes are:

  • Oct. 13: Shame, Honor, & the Gospel: The Big Ideas

  • Oct. 20: Shame & Honor in the Bible: Life in the Gospels & Acts

  • Oct. 27: Shame & Honor in the Church: Mission & Ministry in 1 Peter

  • Nov. 3: Shame & Honor in the World Today: Stories From Near & Far
