Led by Rev. Dr. Bill Wright. Bill holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He as a college professor for eight years, and taught “The Problem of God” as Georgetown U. He is the author of Calvin’s Salvation in Writing: A Confessional Academic Theology, along with several articles. He is working on a systematic theology that will rethink fundamental questions of faith.

The Church of Christ Congregational (UCC) is Open and Affirming since 2008. Classes will last 45 minutes. Optionally, all are invited for worship at 10:30.
Christianity does not have  God all figured out.
 
Our goal is not “apologetics”—using manipulative arguments to convince “nonbelievers.” We want to listen to doubt: to respect it and let it be heard with integrity. This happens in good dialogue, in which all parties expect to gain and grow by a mutual sharing of thoughts and insights. Listening to doubt can help Christians let go of untenable and unhelpful ideas about God; and those who doubt might also find that “God” does not have to mean what they thought.
 
We also want to encourage community and solidarity among those who cannot find it in traditional religions.  Everyone is made for fellowship, whatever we believe.

We would love to provide rides! Please call 413-467-9742.
