Matt talks with Justin Phillips (firstname.lastname@example.org) about a fall class @ All Souls called: "Neighbor Well: Moving Toward Missional Justice through Jesus"
:: WHEN ::
The following Sundays at 3:30pm in the Chapel:
The Christian tradition marks the formal beginning of the church—those people who believed Jesus Christ was God’s son, crucified and now resurrected—with the coming of the Holy Spirit described in Acts. We’re told that people of different languages and backgrounds begin to hear and understand one another; the Holy Spirit has translated us (and for us) across so many divides. Soon thereafter, communities form, money and resources are shared, and this already- strange people becomes stranger still, but not strangers. Neighbors.
In this course, we invite All Souls Church to consider what it means to “neighbor well.” All Souls Church is a new fixture in this neighborhood. Members have spent time listening and attempting to understand our neighbors. It seems appropriate to ask, “what’s now?” How can All Souls Church seek Jesus and his kingdom for our neighborhood? This simple question requires turning back to some familiar stories, which we hope to make a bit unfamiliar in the best possible way, so we might have new eyes with which to see Jesus in our new home.
