Summer Lecture Series
Dr. Phillip Sherman, Associate Professor of Religion at Maryville College, will lead the next session of our summer elective series on Sunday, June 22, in Parish Hall during the Sunday School hour. Last week more than 200 people attended the first lecture. Phillip will continue to address an issue that faces our society as well as The United Methodist Church. His overall title to the series is "Theology, Sexuality & the Future of The United Methodist Church." What does theology have to do with human sexuality? How ought Christians, especially those within the broader Wesleyan tradition, respond to changing societal attitudes surrounding same-sex relationships? What role does ure play in these conversations? This series is exploring these basic questions in an open, honest and respectful manner.
