Because people are constantly learning and developing as they encounter new ideas and enjoy new experiences, UUFA offers a variety of ways for all ages to learn and grow. Whether called Growing Faith, Lifespan Faith Development, Exploration, or simply Education, you are encouraged to participate in something that nurtures your spirituality, deepens your understanding of life, or enriches you in some way.
Read on for one of the groups at UUFA that is open to all who are interesting in exploring historical Jesus.
Historical Jesus Book Discussion Group
Do you want to learn more about the historical Jesus? Based on historical research, much is now known about his life and his teachings and how they fit into the context of his time.
In this group, we will read and discuss various perspectives by scholars about the historical Jesus. We will not address Christian theological questions; those are matters of faith, not history.
The group will meet every first and third Sunday afternoon, starting October 1, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at UUFA in the Heritage Room and virtually. Paul Gurian, who has led similar groups before, will facilitate the discussion. Paul has chosen the first book, The Historical Jesus: A Guide for the Perplexed by Helen K. Bond, a good introduction and overview. After that, the group will choose further readings.
Please contact Paul (PHGurian@earthlink.net) for more information.
