Relentless Love -- 2018 Perry Gresham Lectures with Dr. Tom Oord

The 2018 Perry Gresham Lectures will be held October 26-28. The speaker/leader for this year's event is Dr. Tom Oord, Professor of Theology at Northwest Nazarene University, and author of numerous books including "The Uncontrolling Love of God" and "The Nature of Love." 

The Friday workshop is geared to clergy and church leaders. Titled "Relentless Love: God's Action Now and Beyond the Grave," it focuses on why the idea of  “essential kenosis” can  He help us think about God’s action now and beyond the grave. Attendees will learn that God always loves and does not cause or allow suffering now or in the afterlife. This workshop runs from 10 AM until 2 PM, and includes lunch. The cost is $40, with a student rate of $20. 

The Saturday workshop, which is geared to a general audience is titled: "Believing in God and Love after Tragedy, Abuse, and Suffering." In this workshop, Ord will Oord proposes five beliefs that together provide a solution to questions of God and evil. Some of these beliefs are radical; others are comforting. Each draws from real-life stories, biblical sources, and common sense. Workshop attendees will leave with a renewed sense of God’s love for all and with tools to think and live well in response to evil. Saturday's workshop runs from 10 AM to 1:30 PM. The cost is $15 and includes lunch.

Dealing with Daniel – Wednesday Afternoon Bible Study

            The Wednesday afternoon Bible study, led by Pastor Bob, will begin its fall series on September 19th at 1:30 PM. We will be “dealing with Daniel.” Many of us learned the stories of Daniel in the Lion’s Den, along with the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the Fiery Furnace as children. These are the stories of faithfulness in the face of great danger. While we’ve heard these stories there is much more to Daniel than these stories. In fact, Daniel is one of the most complex books of the bible. The second half of the book is filled with dreams and visions that are difficult to decipher, but which speak to the concerns of people living under duress and wondering if God is there for them. There are 12 chapters of Daniel, so we’ll be spending twelve weeks on the book. If you want to read up on Daniel ahead of the study, you can go to Amazon and order C.L. Seow’s Daniel (Westminster Bible Companion), from WJK Books, but this isn’t necessary. We’ll just be reading the text together. So, if you want to know more about this intriguing, and at times odd, book of the Bible, join us at 1:30 in the Library on September 19.

Special Summer Study – Edgar Dewitt Jones’s “A Personal Confession of Faith.”


                We are two years shy of the centennial of Edgar Dewitt Jones’ arrival in Detroit to become the senior minister of Central Christian Church. Central Christian would merge with Woodward Avenue Christian Church in 1926 to form Central Woodward Christian Church.  There are a number of members of the congregation who remember Dr. Jones, and can tell stories of his ministry (several were baptized by him). 

                On Wednesday August 1, at 1:30, Pastor Bob will lead a discussion of Dr. Jones’ sermon “A Personal Confession of Faith.” The sermon was preached on February 18, 1940. It is an interesting document in which he shares his theology, his commitment to the Disciples and to the ecumenical movement, and to the United States. The sermon begins “Twenty-one years ago I began my Detroit ministry. It was a far different city from the Detroit we know today.” The sermon appears in Jones’ book A Man Stood Up to Preach, published in 1943. 

                We will meet in the library, and all are welcome to attend. Copies of the sermon will be provided.
