Adult Education: Participating in Christ – Dr. Michael J. Gorman

  • Date: Sunday, February 23, 2020
  • Time: 9:00am10:15am
  • Location: Library

The apostle Paul frequently talks about believers being “in Christ.” Theologians refer to this experience as participation in, and union with, Christ. What did participating in Christ mean for Paul? What are the implications for us today, both as individuals and as a church? On February 23, Prof. Michael J. Gorman of St. Mary’s Seminary & University in Baltimore will address these topics. Mike has recently published a book titled Participating in Christ: Explorations in Paul’s Theology and Spirituality (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic) and a booklet called Participation: Paul’s Vision of Life in Christ (Cambridge, Eng.: Grove Books). A chapter from the book appeared in The Christian Century last summer.

Adult education is a time of learning and lively discussion, led by our pastoral staff, guest speakers, and members of the congregation. Join us as we explore a range of diverse topics and issues of the day from a theological perspective. Child care is provided.
