South Broadway Christian Church
Saturday, October 26
1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Featuring Dr. Nancy Pittman presenting “Revelation for the Rest of Us”
The Book of Revelation has been interpreted, reinterpreted, and misinterpreted in light of its readers’ interests and concerns since it first appeared among Christian communities in the late first century. The recent “Left Behind” craze has only served to underscore dramatic differences in how Christians have read the book and made use of it in their faith journeys. In this presentation, Dr. Pittman will ground this difficult book in the situation of those first-century readers and offer ways we might understand its call to action from their perspectives before we view it through our own.
Dr. Pittman will also lead Adult Sunday School on Sunday at 9:00 a.m. titled “Three Marys and a Little Lamb” followed by Sunday worship where she will deliver the sermon.
FaithLife Connections is an ongoing lecture/conversation series offering a forum for participants to explore faith values in daily life. Held on a Saturday, beginning at 1:00 p.m., presentations will include a local panel. Together with the speaker, the panel will respond and share perspectives inviting conversations with all attendees. Throughout the day resources will be provided for those interested in teaching or leading study groups. Each program will conclude at 4:00 p.m. The program welcomes ecumenical and multi-faith participants.
