Fall 2021 Boomerang Groups
We have yet to determine which groups will be running in person and which will be online. You will be asked to indicate what your preference is when registering.
1. Practical Theology with Greg Boyd
Start Date: Thursday Oct 7th
Length: 8 weeks
Register Here: https://nexus.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/1008731
Greg Boyd is both a pastor and theologian who can speak the “common language”. His Books include: “Death of the Warrior God”, “Letters from a Skeptic” and “Present Perfect”.
Check out this NY Times article (a paper not over thrilled with Christianity):
Each evening will be made up of 1 or 2 – 3-6 minute videos where Greg answer specific questions like – The part Theology should play, The restless heart, Why did Jesus die, the idea that everything happens for a reason, open theism – does God know the future and the importance of our choices, creating God in our own image, and why does God allow evil to continue – among many others. So the evening’s direction is determined by the response of the group to the video. For those of you new to Nexus you need to know that we don’t have curriculum driven groups that are trying to get everyone on the same page. We are interested in respecting the idea that we are all on our own journeys and we would like to share these with others and hear responses in a non-judgemental setting.
