Adventures in Faith: Explorations in Prayer - March 17 9 AM - 12 PM
Guest Speaker: Dr. Martha Moore-Keish
Dr. Martha Moore-Keish will be with us the weekend of March 17-18 for our first ever “Adventures in Faith” as part of our new Theologian-in-Residence Program. This new annual program is intended to provide opportunities for our congregation to learn and explore what it means to be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ in the 21st century.
Martha received a A.B. from Harvard University, a M.Div. from Union Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Emory University. She currently serves as the J.B. Green Associate Professor of Theology at Columbia Theological Seminary. She has encouraged greater emphasis on Reformed and liturgical theology specifically in the area of worship. In addition to her work on sacramental theology she states, "worship is, for most of us, the most common way that we shape faith. If we take an interest in shaping worship, and in engaging all people fully in worship, we have a better chance of deepening Christian faith." She extends beyond her own Reformed religious tradition and has sought to build relationships between various traditions.
A continental breakfast will be provided beginning at 8:30 am.
Please RSVP to the church office (702) 454 - 8484 by Wednesday, March 14.
