HAIR Group Starts op again on September 11. We Heretics, Agnostics, Infidels, and Riffraff are eager to start questioning, discussing, and exploring life issues. Please feel free to come and join us, we love to hear a diversity of ideas.
Here is our schedule for the fall: We will begin with a two-week series of discussions sparked by short videos collected from the Internet.
September 11 - Is God Good or Evil? Take the Challenge.
September 18 - Morality, Where Does it Come From?
We will then begin to discuss the book A Generous Orthodoxy by Brian McLaren. These books are available to buy from the church office. We are asking for $18 or what you can afford.
September 25 - Introduction and Chapter 0 (A Generous Refund)
October 2 - Part One: Why I Am A Christian
We will mostly discuss Chapter 3 (Would Jesus be a Christian?). People can choose to read only this chapter or the whole of Part One, depending on their time and interest.
October 9 - Thanksgiving
In Part Two, Brian explores the "kind of Christian" he is. We will choose several of these to explore over the remaining weeks until the Christmas break. Listed here are some tentative choices (the group will finalize these with input from all), just to give a sense of the topics we will be exploring. We will update RHUC Online once we have selected our final topics.
October 16 - Why I Am Evangelical
October 23 - Why I Am Post/Protestant
October 30 - Why I Am Liberal/Conservative
November 6 - Why I Am Charismatic/Contemplative
November 13 - Why I Am Fundamentalist/Calvinist
November 20 - Why I Am Green
November 27 - Why I Am Depressed-Yet-Hopeful
Please join us on October 25th at 7 pm in the Chapel to discuss SMALL GREAT THINGS by Jodi Picoult. "...complete with unflinching insights, richly layered characters, and a page-turning plot with a gripping moral dilemma at its heart- an African American nurse and a white supremacist are at odds in a life and death situation." New members are always welcome. Please speak to Sandra Loughton for more details or call the church office at 905.884.1301.
