Book Discussion of The Weight of Glory and Other Addresses
by C.S. Lewis

Location: Room 213

If you appreciate C.S. Lewis, you should consider joining us for a series of group discussions of his book The Weight of Glory and Other Addresses. The book presents nine sermons or talks given by Lewis in the 1940s and includes some of his most profound insights. Because they represent separate addresses covering different topics, you need not worry if you can’t read it all or attend every class. Tom Hannah and Don Schnurpfeil will co-lead the six-week class and would welcome your participation. The first class will be a discussion of the introduction. The book can be obtained in local bookstores or online (and both print copies and audiobooks are available through the county library). 


Hot Topics / Romans 1–6
Location: Fellowship Hall

January 20: How does Leviticus help us think about questions related to sexuality? Dr. Jay Sklar, a leading expert on the book of Leviticus, will seek to answer this question as he presents clear teaching on this sensitive and prevailing topic.

January 27: The Life and Times of the Apostle Paul As we prepare to study the book of Romans, come learn about the life of the apostle Paul. In particular, we will examine his conversion, journeys, and core convictions, all of which helped shape the book of Romans.

February 3: Dr. Dan Doriani will lead this study of Romans 1–6, the apostle Paul’s great summary of the Christian faith and life. Romans is full of doctrines that shape a Christian’s identity, hopes, and convictions as well as actions. The truths of Romans speak to us today just as they have spoken to many others over the ages.
