We’re partnering with our friends at Brentwood Christian Church for two events that dare to ask the hard questions about the Bible. Here’s a description from BCC’s website:
All of us have questions, we just aren’t always sure we can bring them up in church. Here at Brentwood, we want to change that. Based on a new series of books by Chalice Press(including one that Phil contributed to), we are providing a forum where you can ask questions you’ve often wondered, but weren’t sure you were allowed to ask, especially in church.
–On Wednesday, July 20th, at 6:30 p.m., we will have a panel of religious scholars and ministers, including Phil, respond to the questions you bring to the table. If you want to submit your question(s) in advance, post them in the comments section below or send an email to Phil. You will also have a chance to write down your questions during the event and pass them on to the panelists.
–On Wednesday, July 27th, at 7:00 p.m., we will welcome Christian Piatt, editor of the Banned Questions series of books, who will share the story behind the Banned Questions series, as well as respond to questions you might have. In addition to being an author, Christian is co-founder and music minister of Milagro Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Pueblo, Colorado where his wife serves as pastor.
You will also be able to purchase Banned Questions books on the 27th and have them signed by Christian during a “meet the author” after session. We will also give away autographed copies to three lucky participants!
Make sure to check it out. It’s going to be good. Feel free to post your questions on this blog as well.
