***THIS CLASS HAS MOVED TO WESLEY HALL (lower level) for June 18th, 25th, July 2nd, and July 9th

***ON July 16th, we will meet in the Hamline Room (lower level)


The Reverend Frank Nichols will be teaching this six week class based on Meeting Jesus for the First Time by Marcus J. Borg. A review of the book on states that Borg proclaims that Christian life is “ultimately not about believing or about being good.”  Rather, it is about “a relationship with God that involves us in a journey of transformation.” Borg, a leader of the Jesus Seminar group who spoke at CUMC several years ago, views the historical Jesus as a spirit person, teacher of alternative wisdom, social prophet, and movement founder who invited all into a transforming relationship with the Spirit that he himself knew.


Join this class for thought-filled discussion and meet Jesus again for the first time!
