- What is your experience/relationship with the Gospel?

This nine-week online course will take place over Zoom each Thursday between 3:30pm and 5:00pm, starting on April 23, 2020. It will provide a friendly environment for exploring the teachings of the Gospel in our challenging time. It is designed to help us discern the Divine in everyday life with special attention given to personal and community growth in our convoluted and complex world. We will have the opportunity to gain new insights about the Gospel based on the New Testament writings associated with the names Mathew, Mark, and Luke, and we may find new meanings that speak to our personal and societal conditions.
Using the Liberation Theology methodology of seeing, judging, acting, and celebrating, this course will explore the practical implications of the Gospel. Designed specifically as an online program, its activities include lecturing, reading, journaling, Lectio Divina, and worship sharing.
